Your hand firmly on my neck

It's like sex came out of your fingertips

Right into my arteries

Flowing with the blood into my brain

Lighting up

Or shutting down

I can't tell

My lungs frantically trying to catch up

Just breathe faster

I'm swimming

I'm drowning

I'm falling deeper

And then you say my name

You know my real name

Dragging me back from the edge

I can hear my heart's rhythm

Feel your breath as you speak softly

That's all I need

In this moment

To come back from death
