in the grip

Posted in Crimson Writ, Poetry on June 24th, 2021 by D'jaevle

you are one breath away from being in the grip of my hunger.

just one.

one breathe is forever.

it’s long enough to feel fear.

convinction,

anticipation.

desire,

doubt,

surrender.

one breath is long enough to meet my eyes

and after that

you have no time at all.
