I’m Holding My Breath


I’m holding my breath, lest it melt all your silver,

I’m exhaling slow, lest excitement consume;

I’m slowing my heart, lest its beats quell your music,

I’m stilling my soul, lest its vibrance entomb.


Some moments are meant to be savoured, slow…

    Without a doubt one of your best, Emily… It holds me entranced and I keep reading it over and over so I can ponder its many facets… πŸ™‚

  5. Beautifully said Melody. With the rushing of modern life we sometimes forget to take time to enjoy the little things.

  6. Melody, I definitely “savored” this lovely post! πŸ˜‰
