Whenever Ink is Needed

I held in my breath
as you slipped into
the empty
chambers of my lungs—

I waited (for as long
as I could) for you
to speak— 

and  I hoped 
( for as long as I could)
for your words to
fill in my breathlessness;

that I maybe able to
sleep soundly tonight
if I knew you were
there making my chest
rise and fall to the sound
of your pulse.

Though I had to let go
sooner— as I breathed in
once again this
stagnant existence of myself.

I was this close.
