Needing You

A preponderance of evidence
as tangled thoughts figure-eight
only to resonate
in a haze of Cerebral*Hypoxia.
You leave me breathless
While my heart
I drown in yearning
as realization dawns.
Life, without you, is torture
and this is bliss-
seeing truth
within your eyes
and finding love.

* Cerebral hypoxia refers to deprivation of oxygen supply to brain tissue. Mild or moderate 
cerebral hypoxia is sometimes known as diffuse cerebral hypoxia. It can cause confusion 
and fainting, but its effects are reversible.

    Love is wonderful and well worth the "Cerebral hypoxia" that sometimes results from passion. Nice imagery in this wonderful poetry, Virginia. Lovingly, Dane Ann

    I remember that from High School! I also remember that it rendered me into a blithering idiot incapable of speech or balance. Thank God I overcame that! I think it may have been because I would forget to breathe sometimes. Now, I'm looking for the kind that grows on you, if you know what I mean? Thank you for reminding me:) And thank you for honoring my poem in you favs.
