Breathe Me

 come here to me and breathe me,

i am here only now or leave me,

is your answer silence, or, am I waiting?

My reason to be here now, fast, escaping,

Adrift in separate spaces, where my place is,

 A broken chorus and a banging drum;

softness speaks and I, would listen,

paths grown over, stumbling found,

no-one returned and all made ground; then madness is not, trouble to be feared- as I approach and no way back is neared.

Take on my chariots and cups,

a life from which I turn'd has caught me up,

Another day to bear, another new day's sun

Another life to live, another wish undone.

Wow. This is the second poem I've read of yours that was really good. You got some talent there!
