Needing You

Written by: Virginia Mitchell



A preponderance of evidence
escalates
as tangled thoughts figure-eight
only to resonate
in a haze of Cerebral*Hypoxia.
You leave me breathless
While my heart
hammers,
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.
