A Single Breath

A Single Breath


Without any doubt at all

He said

There is another world

Out there

A world of wonder wind

And wild

So then without a single


She stole from him a

Gasp and sigh

Then kissed them back

To him

Before she smiled 

And waved

Then bid a fond goodbye

    • Fay Slimm.

      The way to an amicable ending is found in this expressively tender verse - - fondness never begrudges the sight and experience of another world....... good read, nicely put and thank you Nev.

            Can you help N? I tried taking just a single breath for 24 hours one day. Why didn't I feel well after it? lol.

            Something mesmerising about a single breast, ... the i realised you had written 'single breath'.

            Most definitely theres this other world and its full of the ones that got away...... pretty people but rotters every one of 'em.

            • Neville

              thank you for realising, in every respect.... respect... N

              In imagination, there is another world
              What is aloof here, is abundant there

              Thnx for the gasps and sighs
