I Breathe You

Lounged by my side

You shimmering molten gold

Your hands oozing warmth

And these are mine to hold

My fingers caressing yours

Tracing shape of your nails

My eyes searching yours

They’re telling me some tales

A part of you is air

Or is that your perfume

You flow from the same source

From flowers left to bloom

I breathe you in so deep

The world around is haze

You ripple through my body

In thousand different ways

  1. Your word pictures draw me in, Sundahram. I especially appreciated the lines:

    β€œA part of you is air

    Or is that your perfume

    You flow from the same source

    From flowers left to bloom”

    I guess because I am a fan of fine perfume
    And I love flowers, that part would resonate with me.
    Lovely, positive thoughts… far from the
    Heartbreak of Hearings! Thank you!

  2. Came back to read this again. This post came up when I was traveling and a quick read and a like later I was immersed in some sort of deja-vu. I couldn’t pin point to what part of my memories I was relating your words with. Took my time and 10 days later here I am. Still wondering! Your words took me to a memory I don’t yet recall. Maybe it’s dormant. Maybe it just doesn’t exist! Who really knows? Needless to say, I loved, totally loved this poem Sundaram! Thank you for invoking this mystic nostalgia.

    1. Dear Lalitha…Hi…πŸ˜€πŸ˜€….your comments always make me smile….you genuinely read, and think about my words…indebted to you for that…πŸ™πŸ™…just happy that I could strum those invisible strings inside your mind…I guess we are all connected in some way…a collective conscious and unconscious brain is a reality…my feelings can ripple yours, and yours mine…that’s the beauty of expression…that’s what makes reading, and writing such a pleasure…take care….✌🀘✌:-):-)

  3. Wow Sundaram!! What a beautifully simple explanation to a complex feeling!!! You have a certain way with words which always manage to rekindle my fading memory and that’s the reason I read and reread most of your work. More than you, I should feel indebted to your words for making their way into a forgotten minefield inside my brain. Thank you and please keep it coming!!!!

    1. Sure my friend…✌…Thanks for the encouragement…I try to wait for something to come to me before writing it, and I’m just a beginner in expression. So glad it resonates with you. πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

    1. Hey Rudraa!πŸ––…glad to see you here…I’ve been in the clutches of this ever demanding external world…only allowing me a peek or two here and there inside me – so not much happening in terms of writing to be shared. I hope all is well at your end.

      1. My pleasure…I have been concerned that you weren’t writing only to discover that it was Me and I had missed your offerings. πŸ™ƒ they are wonderful as always. Have a beautiful day 🌷

      2. Not writing as much as I would’ve liked, and not being able to read either…But intermittently I do read your words, and they are as lovely as I first found them. Have a great day ahead…πŸ€˜πŸ‘:-):-)
