‘You’re mine’

The relief came in waves

first with your breathing

then with your eyes,

sweet rainbow on your lips

pastel kaleidoscope of peace

across your face.

 

Relief like summer rain

in humid oppression,

icy water on throbbing veins,

a cold which tightens its grip,

stationery then twists

as your heart lifts.

 

There is beauty, unexplained

in the way your temples sink,

jaw becomes stiff,

a faint murmur of hope

easily missed,

fallen angel dying to be kissed.

 

The relief came in waves

ripples in your lungs

pulses in your thumbs

glitter in your eyes,

yet I’m unable to stop time,

grab hold and say ‘you’re mine’.
