74070 - Deep breaths

Ν. Λυγερός

She was a dove. He was an eagle.
But they were together
in the same skyscraper
in the city that never sleeps.
He heard her breathless rhythm
but he was ready to save her.
He came close to her
so close that he could breathe with her.
At that moment she felt
the tongue of fire
and suddenly she saw the light.
He had given her a part
of his millenary soul
to avoid her death.
He was above her like a bridge
and his arms around her.
But his fingers
were in her soul
in the deepest part of her life.
They kept her alive
even after the end.
It was her first step.
She was at last awakened.
With him inside her.
