    Her inner beauty was concealed deep
    within the confines of a shadowed heart;
    depressed and feeling so
    unloved
    &
    unmoved
    that
    she couldn’t
    &
    we couldn't
    breathe

    Love was there to be had if only
    a true
    "gentleman of quality"
    and a
    "lady of essence"
    could find where
    it is hidden; to surely rescue its yearning
    and
    give the kiss of life to
    their lost loves' vibrancy

    Mystified by the secrets sold that
    sent love into seclusion, she lay
    m~o~t~i~o~nless
    in
    wait for the one who
    would open his heart
    so
    she could breathe again

    In her dreams of him, she dreamt
    of a storied past that beholds
    her hope to love again…
    she desired a resuscitator of her
    veiled heart
    & a
    captivator of her covered soul

    In his dreams of her, he dreamt
    the same dream in unison…
    that a life together begins
    with the return of one another's
    "coveted exhale"
    in hopes of
    a sensuous restimulation

    Together they dream a future
    where two hearts can live in
    warm comfort; and tandem
    breaths beguile them both
    to
    love
    &
    breathe again
