My Oxygen

Inhale. Exhale. You.
Inhale. Exhale. You.

My focus is off,
Misbalanced, tilting.
And God I’m trying
I mean, I’m trying.
But it’s you, only you…
Always only you..

Inhale. Exhale. You.
Inhale. Exhale. You.

The way I see you
Smiling, eyes shining
Lips serenading
My love, you’re driving
Driving me insane…
Breathlessly insane…

Inhale. Exhale. You.
Inhale. Exhale. You.

Keeping up my breath
Self-control, love…right?
Yes, I can do this…
My world is mine…right?
Yes, it has to be…
It’s just that simple.

Inhale. Exhale. You.
Inhale. Exhale. You.

God, really? It’s not.
Who am I kidding.
Everything I do
Or say or see or
Breathe or taste or feel…
Everything is you

Inhale. Exhale. You.
Inhale. Exhale. You.

And if everything
is only you, love
Then let me give my
Only life, only
Heart and my only
Soul to only you…

Inhale. Exhale. You.
Inhale. Exhale. You.

I depend on you
Like the air I breathe
Without you, I would
Cease to exist…
You, my oxygen,
Compose my heart.
