Reaching for Breath

Drowning in a sea of familiarity,
I touch the face of the One I've ignored for too long...
Beauty creeping into my searching eyes,
Broken,
Falling,
And seeking an answer...
When will hate burn?
Don't pretend you aren't in pain...
So many lies robbing you of passion,
Won't you stand?
Fight for all the lost innocence?
So sick,
Defenseless...
Flames dance brightly,
A seduction unknown...
Your heart lost in a fantasy,
Such make-believe intimacy,
Didn't you realize the lie all along?
Begging for one last night,
Loving every softly whispered deception...
Enough!
Forgotten words wait to steal all of you,
Breathing lust slowly down your neck,
Hidden behind beautiful features...
Intoxication so deadly...
Escape out of grasp,
Night becomes your Lover...
Impossible to resist,
In love,
Reaching for Breath...
And gone. ~

Thank you so much!(: I didn't think this one was any good.. I guess alot of pain is in this... But you were spot on on the interpretation!

The pain of moving on and seeing the other person act like nothings wrong; like nothing was shared. He left on bad terms didn't he? What I really get out of this is that deception is sometimes a two way streak. Even if both parties don't intentionally deceive. I could elaborate deeper.. But I don't think I shall. Once again you don't fail to dissapoint, in my opinion this is one of the best I've read.

To me this i see it as you being and loving someone you don't want too, instead you want to feel a burning hate for them instead, but that's not the way it is. I really love it you are an amazing writer. i love the pic as well.
