You are a pounding heart

By Rachel Lawrence (Stormboxer)

With you I'm lost

You are a pounding heart,
Overwhelmed by sensation.
The twirling thoughts that strip away my foundation.
A gift from God or the Devils temptations.
My heart’s desire, my souls adoration.


And with you I’m lost


Where are you now? You’re in my thoughts.
You’re all that I hoped for… all that I want.
And with you I’m lost.


You’re the warmth of the sun when you brush my hand.
What love songs are made of.
Hemingway’s pen.
The words on the paper.
The faith in the band.
You crawl through my veins and undo my plans.


A summer season colliding with a tornado.
You’re a million deep breaths at once,
That takes my breath away though.
You’re the butterflies in my stomach.
The words caught in the back of my throat.
The I love you on the tip of my tongue,
the reason I choke.
And with you I’m lost.
