If I close my eyes and hold my breath,
I can imagine myself back besides you.

Within that moment I’m back

floating in your scent,
drowning in your touch,
and backstroking in your presence.

But as soon as I relax

and try to take a breath,
I’m sucked back into the present…

Once again left gasping for air.
