Needing You

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.

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.
