quicken

My heart quickens

Suddenly I’m aware of my breath, the temperature of my skin
As if there’s a string inside me
drawing me in, pulling me tighter

I feel consumed at times by this desire

overwhelmed, it gives me pause

Can I make it another moment without you?
Could I make the moment with you into another?

Weakened by my want, I try in vain to sleep
my veins won’t let me, still pulsing around the current you send into my system
electricity that I cannot quiet, not without your touch
