Micro-Poetry: Breathless

A Micro-Poetry, “Breathless.”

After all this time, after all the mountains we have climbed, after all the raindrops we have spilled, you still leave me breathless. Goosebumps rise at your breath upon my neck and your whisper of “I Love You.” Just as ripples rush out to sea, love is breathless.

Micro-Poetry: Breathless

I would love to say that you
take my breath away,
but to be honest and truthful,
you make my mind and body
forget it has a breath at all.

What is a Free Verse Poetry? Typically patterned by speech rather than meter, this form of poetry is very open to the author’s discretion and usually does not rhyme. Visual and sound effects are often employed.  It can have as many lines as the writer wishes.
