define: Atrophy

by Shannon Blameuser

Take me over.
Possess me.
I’ll let you.
I’m lost in what I thought I was,
Missing what I once had,
To have it would enthrall.
Your eyes hypnotize all my senses,
And I’m yours, faithfully.
The once clandestine flutter of my heart becomes erratic,
I feel alive again.
Blood flows, pulse elevates, breath deepens,
I will not fight.
I allow every single change,
It is you.
I am you.
