as long as you're still breathing

by Olivia Weinkein

keep breathing
i'm beginning to find myself
within the rise and fall of your chest.

everytime you inhale i fall in love.
and everytime you exhale i fall in love
again.

This is astounding. So emotive, and not-drawn-out. The simplicity itself makes it gorgeous, and the wording simply multiplies everything.

Olivia, the simple intensity awakes my imagination so that I can put myself in the narrator's place. Breathe to live; breathe to love - a trip where nothing exists but the two of "us."
