Random Poem:

What You've Done to Me

What is this
You've done to me?
The atmosphere
Of my heart
Has wrecked
My equilibrium.
Up and down, I whirl
In your loving wake
And every thought
My mind permits
Wear the name of you.
No reason holds to me
When you're in the mix.
Firmly in your hands, I am
Doing whatever you will.
What you've done to me
I can not say.
I only know
I would not breathe
If you ever stop.
