"First Breath"

Strange subtle invasion
slowly, yet devouring
through the depth of me
Sweet admiration's embrace
taking my first breath with me
Savoring the smile
worn strong in this renewal

Captivation overload
to gasp, is first most thought
Yet the wait...
has love now begot
In full abandonment
I drink the breath in, as in thirst
Life is not lived
nor love ever known
without breathing the breath
of first being born

I breathe indeed
moreso - I feed
on the first breath
of the completely filling me
