Breathless

When I thought
I needed to breathe
He left me breathless
With a smile
With a kiss.
With a hand
With his lips.
I could happily
Never breathe again
With a kiss
As lovely as his
When I thought
I needed to think
He cleared my mind
Taking me to
A space and place
With no tick-tock
Or rigours of time
When I thought
I needed to run
He bound me tight
Laughter
Joy
And fun holding faster
Than ropes could ever bind
When I thought I needed
Nothing and no-one
Without trying
He showed me the truth
Behind my lies
And I realised it’s okay
To need some kind of something
And someone
Sometimes
