Intoxicated

Your touch.

Your smell.

Your laugh.

 

I submerge myself in all of them; in all of you.

There is no sign of coming up - it's too late for that.

 

 

Further I go; my body is sinking. I'm numb.

But beside me, your gaze is like the sun, it warms the places that have gone cold. It gives me life.

 

Life. So precious. However, somehow you make life so much more than life itself.

You give it meaning.

You give it joy.

 

I realize that I'm way below the top.

 

 

I have two choices: I can either swim up to the surface, or keep sinking and subsequently drown.

 

I look at the surface and then back at you.

 

The choice is clear. 

I descend.

 

And we're together.

 

I'll rather be drunk with your love and all it offers than be sober without your comforting companionship. 

 

I'm intoxicated.

And there's nothing else in the world that I would rather be.
