careening

i drink you in
and become intoxicated
merely by your presence
so much that
the slight feel of your hand
on my neck
and the brush if your lips
on my cheek
send me over the edge

and then your strong arm
reaches around to
rescue me from falling
alone
and you pull me back
into your chest
and together
we plummet
