said it myself:
its so like
trying to breathe;
and though
holding you close
means more to me
than food or drink
even the very air
I breathe --
never will my arms
take your
breath away.
I can let
the other things
work as they will;
give the strongest bond
known to god or man
the freedom to work
its magic.
