Leaps of Breath









rage me like the ocean

in a fever wave

turning torrents in the sand while


I dig tired fingers into

the grooves in your atmosphere

and you stay between skin so


lap me up in rocks and shells

fine on the tip of your tongue

sweet when you breathe it in


sinking chest on chest

curving through the night

hiding in words and leaps of breath

  1. Love the words with the image!

  2. Dearest Nicole,
    You kick ass. That is all.

  3. Lap me up in rocks and shells…absolutely love that stanza. Great poem. It’s interesting to me that you write with no punctuation. It’s like allowing the reader to stop, pause, rush on, as they choose rather than being told. Is that something you did on purpose? I like it.

  4. I wish I had your talent for slinging verse….
    Well done.
