as this longing breathes

this longing breathes
deep within a secret place
unseen and unheard
one last promise to keep
all else so fractured
scarring with such delicacy
the pain so mesmerizing
the ache so addicting
was it ever real
the culmination
the consummation
this insatiable beat
dreams turned to memories
eliciting hints of desires
laughter and tears and passion
as this longing breathes

Springboks v All Blacks

Today was a fantastic sports day. The All Blacks beat the Springboks and the A’s evened up the series against Detroit in the bottom of the ninth. What more could I want? ;)

I’d write more but it’s late and I’m oddly sleepy. Well, maybe not so oddly…
