You ask if we can just be friends. Why does it have to be all or nothing with me? Don't you see Gina?

I take a breath, one final gasp, one final grasp of you.


You are everywhere, filling my lungs up with your scent, filling my heart up with your love.

One last time.

In and out.

Deep and wide.

I need you to live. I need you to love. I need you. I can't do this without you. I can't do this with you.

I am on fire, just for a moment. Death defying, life defining need embraces me. It holds me hostage. Your angry, passionate jade eyes, penetrating my soul, hold me hostage. I'm stuck, stopped in place.

You are everything, too much and not enough. Desire rushes my blood, love drowns my heart.

One last time.

Down then up.

Give-up and get away.

You asked if we could just be friends? Why did it have to be all or nothing with me? Don't you know Gina?

You are my oxygen.

Fucking oxygen.

The End
