Breath – Bref Double

Here are the rules for a bref double:

4 stanzas: 3 quatrains (or 4-line stanzas) and 1 couplet (or 2-line stanza)
3 rhymes: an A rhyme, B rhyme, and C rhyme
The A and B rhymes appear twice in the first 3 stanzas and once each in the couplet
The C rhyme is the final line in each of the quatrains
Each poem has a variable line length, but the lines should be consistent within each poem


You are the vessel of desire
Sizzling me with fiery passion
Every breath I take it’s for you
Sharing every tender moments

The nexus between life and death
The owner of my heart, my squire
And from here to eternity
The joy I have in your presence

And when you are gone I am blue
Like the desert, I need the rain
You’re the last piece of my puzzle
I’m sad and lost in your absence

Together we build an empire
With every breath we can go through
