BREATHE

i listened as your voice
faded to silence.
then through the air
i could hear you breathe,
soft and rythmic
in my ear.
i closed my eyes
and i could almost feel
your soft breath on my skin.
i could feel the warmth
of your body next to mine.
i wanted to reach for you
to touch your face, your lips.
i wanted to hold your hand in mine.
i listened
as i willed myself to open my eyes...
pressing the reciever closer
to my ear,
i sighed--a quiet sigh.
maybe soon
you'll be near enough to touch...
until then, i listen--
i dont want to miss
a breath...

Nice, hope the person at the other end knows your love for him/her.

not through itself,
but through the creatures
dwelling within its bosom.

thanks tricks!    

this is something he (abc) and i used to do while in highschool..when the talk would die down, we'd just sit and listen..even after all these years, there is something comforting in the listening...

Sigh ... just lovely Dg!  You've described beautifully the soft, tender moments shared between two over the lines. My husband worked out of town for several years, and I know this well! Very nicely penned!  

Best wishes,
/Kit
