Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

this is the last of my breaths
   this one
   the slow silent draw
      rising
my chest
the plunging cool
   hinting with its final texture
at long drawn out lives
moments
   precious moments
flickering and spinning away
like the relentless hands on a clock
   terrifyingly
      important
   each and every moment
   and its sibling breath
remembering
summers scent
    the exhilaration of the breath
       drawn from your breast
          from your 
            lips
sweet as a winter storm
clinging like autumn haze
   mountain air in some
      distant
         distant
            past
deeper and deeper
   air flowing
      swirling with graceful
   elegance
      over my lips
down   
and then the pause
remembrance
   stillness
the dying embers of a kiss
   the cusp of our passions
held
   silent and long
      each moment an age
this final moment
trapped and made
   prisoner
      servant to this mortal will
this dying
            dying
                moment
filled with the breath of you
   memories of your intensity
      the fire of your taste
      the scent and strength of you
held
   as precious and as magnificent
as all the moments 
         all the breaths
      that sang their silent song
before
   and then
      with reverence
                   release
      with sadness
                   surcease
the ending of it all
   memory
      moment
         a lifetime
breathed back into the world
given
   in despair
      with melancholy
    the triumph and the tragedy
   of a life lived
surrendered
   as we surrendered
       this moment
         this final moment
this dying of our kiss
