Siren Whispers

Siren Song


Abandoned breaths

I stopped counting

the heartbeats

that raced on ahead of me


I’d see your name

we’d talk

or touch.

I thought that over time

I’d become inured

to your effect

yet here we are

and every time is like

the first time

the crackle of electricity

between us

growling louder

heat rising as

along with my reason

I’ve abandoned breaths

when you are near.
