BREATHLESS - - - once again

tryptophan fills my veins, lost in lingering lullabies- i sort out what used to be mine he was enchanting with evocative eyes, feverish in tantalizing touches; a fraction of forgiveness without atonement made me weak- and i am left BREATHLESS but i am placid and quiescent, yet frenzied and unrestrained- i prosper in the present, reckless and uncontained the wrath of my spirit, spontaneous- faded and jaded memories of whens and nows and hows and thens, i can’t handle all the sleeplessness drifting onto my pillow at night searching in the shadows deep, like an x-ray deeming for bones- for youth has lost her sleep… searching for tenderness, longing to leave a farewell note, just to say goodbye for good- so i can finally breathe- but i am left BREATHLESS... once again
