Haunting Dreams

The fleeting bliss
When your heart skips
and beats too fast

Your breath catches
a moment of no thoughts
no decisions
just feelings

A dull ache of desire
and denial
when your breath catching
makes you want to cry
heart skipping and racing
makes you wish it’d just

attraction is fatal

but I’d kill to
freeze the moment
no matter how much torture
I’ve felt

  1. in the final stanza where you say “I’ve felt.” try changing it to “I’ve endured.” it seems like it could catch more of the feeling through that, idk if its just me, but it seems like it could.

    1. hit post to fast :3 other than that, its my favorite one so far. Something about it just jumps out at me, and grabs my attention more than the others.
