Breathing

Standing across the room from you-
Most painful thing I’ve ever done,
When all I want to do
Is run so fast and jump
Straight into your arms
(Which, in this dream,
Would be open and waiting)
And you’d hold me so close
It would hurt to breathe-
But it’s really nothing new-
It already hurts to breathe around you.

This is a short and sweet love poem. i love the way you describe the feeling of wanting to be with this person, but knowing this isn't the right moment. Very nice job! Check out some of my work, too if you'd like. keep writing!
