Poem: Winning.

You are

So close to me:

I feel your breath

On my skin.

_____________________

I don’t care

About anything else;

With you,

I feel like

I’ll always win.

_____________________

I feel like

I’ve scored

The winning goal,

My despair feels

Paper thin.

_____________________

My face is fixed

In a perpetual grin.

My meals seem tastier,

My drinks intoxicate me,

Even as they are

Devoid of gin.

_____________________

I am drunk

On the quality

Of your love,

My heart spins.

_____________________

I perform impossible feats,

Like standing on tiptoe

On a pin,

_____________________

As the joy from your love

Fills me up within.
