when you are in the room

when you breathe to me

even the air is an intoxicant and

when you leave

it is poison

when I read you

each letter like a grain of sand

scratches my eyes

ripping tears across my vision

I print your words so that

I can burn them and

inhale your mind

    Poetry it is. It is so full of passion and romanticism. What a way you have with words!

    You crack me up…this is like some mad scientist mixing volatile in congruent ingredients in order to create the atomic cocktail of love…. !

      I’m always happy to entertain. I actually toned this down a little bit before i posted it. Something about injecting ink and ashes…didn’t quite fit my mood at the time. 🙂

      “atomic cocktail of love” <—love it..

  3. this is steamy-intense.

  4. Eric, I love this. So simple and yet cutting through to what’s true.

  5. Great romantic rant. Love that “tears” can be read and works
    with both meanings/pronunciations.
    …and unless I’m mistaken…you’ve been lazy…
    I still don’t have an “about” page though, so I guess I shouldn’t talk…
