Electrical Currents

Heartstring Eulogies

“This power you give me.
Just from being in your presence.
It feels like electricity.”

This unsteady beating of my heart, can you hear it? This jagged breathing and shaking in my fingers, can you feel it? It’s like I’m stuck in a whirlwind with no chance of escape. But, you see, that’s the thing. I don’t want to. I want to stay right here. With you in my arms. Telling me that everything will be alright. Until the moment comes that the whirlwind has ceased and I have no recollection of when it happened. That’s the power you give me. Just from being in your presence. Just from sharing the same air. We become one. And the rest of the world falls away into a blissful oblivion.

This is what it’s like
to be with you.
