Altered State

Surreal is how you render

what were once ordinary surrounds

your presence challenges my senses

invading my awareness

 leaves me grasping onto

shreds of sensibility

swooning I gaze absently

at the bareness of your forearm

between thought and voice

the lapse before your words penetrate

my psyche’s suspended animation

mingled with desire’s impetuous rush

overcome yet miraculously overcoming

for all intent and purpose

I manage to stay intact

though I remain

irrevocably altered by you.
