...love eternal... (free verse)
"my cadence”

true love is when a person lives in your mind and swims through your heartbeat...

i saw you staring...
(my god, you’re as gorgeous as snow.)
...i realize now that it was me who was staring.
(if you could feel my heartbeat racing… you’d know.)

ours are the names in your backyard, in the sand. 
written as temporary as wind, but as permanent as land.
i should've never let go that night... should i?
i should’ve never gone home.

…they are your want and your need…

i want you to be my instrument.
what i turn to for relief.
i want so badly to be your remedy.
the stability you need to breathe.

you are what i breathe in, each morning.
i promise i will not exhale till my end.
you are my one weakness... one love... one dream... one mistake.
the one i hope to make again and again and again.

…you will always live and swim inside me.
