I snatch my breath after we kiss
because I want to feel you

contract

in my wheezing, useless lungs
not just a craving
but

a desperate need

within


in the physical urge
to breathe you in,

and


make your mystical secrets
a part of my body.
"write poetry" she said after my last asthma attack so I did. Breathlessly.


I actually wrote this one after an asthma attack. Tried to format it to my breathing pattern whilst I was having it...but capturing that kind of frustration is impossible, honestly. :P

I might have asthma I don't know, I used to use and inhaler. However, I still run and do sports anyway.

I guess everyone is metaphorically asthmatic when falling in love, struggling to get something we yearn for. Real nice way to convey that idea.

I totally felt the kind of panting pattern to that. Amazing, I've never seen anything like it. I hope one day I'll be able to write on the same level as you!

I didn't notice frustration while I read, I noticed a -need- one that is unconcious in its urgency. I can't say I've ever experienced an asthma attack, and I'm not sure if it felt like one while I read this, but I definitely felt something unsure. Maybe like you worked too hard to portray what comes so natural?

Asthma is a pain... I have exercise-induced asthma so it doesn't happen all that often but it sucks when i does.

It really is. Especially when you wake up in the middle of the night bleeding.

I cough so hard sometimes that I bleed. The doctors told me it was the intensity of the cough causing blood vessels to pop. :( It doesn't happen often but once in a while I get really annoyed.

O_O That kinda  makes quadriplegia seem like a cake walk (a cake flop would be more accurate... you get what I meant).

Hm, this is a interesting way to capture both an all-consuming love and an asthma attack into the same poem....I like it, the concepts work well together and the formatting really brings the emotions to light.

Amazing work, m'dear! :)

As I read it for the first time, I felt that the breathing pattern was corporated into this, so it isn't "impossible" as you might think.;)

Catchy title, caught my eye. xD And now seriously.
Intriguing formatting, but I am not certain if necessary.
Haven't seen such an approach to love yet. A curious view.

I get asthma too... I almost died because of it. Twice. Any sign of asthma makes me panic as I recall the pictures of the trauma room, feeling my heartbeat booming like the bells of a funeral...

Any kind of cough would make me run to my mom. "Mom will I go to a hospital again?" "No..." "But I could die again, right?" "Don't worry about that, sweetheart." Since then I have a phobia of hospitals and all those overly white health buildings... people say "hospitals are where children are born, that a good thing!" but heck, I almost died twice in there.
