Simple Breaths

It was simple,
A breath,
And I slipped from now to then,
And I saw your face again,
And your face remotely yours,
As we stood before the doors…

It was simple,
A breath,
My voice catching on the past,
My voice catching on the pain,
And I saw your eyes again,
And the feeling grown, fondness at last.

It was simple,
A breath,
Two friends holding hands, at last,
Two hearts still held from the past:
I found myself, now, kissing you,
Kissed in ways I never knew.

It was simple,
A breath,
All the time, it would not cease,
Two hearts yearning for release,
Seeking confirmation this was real,
Two souls seeking love to heal.

It was simple,
A breath,
And your arms around me stayed;
On your chest, my fingers splayed…
Must it always go this way?
Must I await for days and days…?

It was simple,
A breath,
I don’t want to watch this death,
Don’t want to bear another flight
When such simplicity feels right,
Can’t switch off this feeling like a light…

It was simple,
A breath,
A needed breath, no wasted time,
And I was yours and you were mine…
Please give simplicity its due;
It’s only me and only you….

It was simple,
A simple breath….
