Departure from Innocence

One of the poems I wrote while in one of those pensive moods where you wish everything would have worked out the way you wanted them to.

Departure From Innocence

I forget to breathe when he’s around
My senses are heightened
Emotions swirling all around me

I forget to breathe when he touches me
My skin is electrified
My heartbeat quickens

I forget to breathe when he kisses me
My thoughts fly away
My lips ask for more

I forget to breathe when he walks away
The sorrow engulfs me
No words can comfort me

I start to breathe as I count
The days till he returns
