Breathe

 

I breathe.

Inhale.

Exhale.

Two easy movements.

Involuntary.

Necessary.

The difference between two ends,

Life,

Death.

 

Breath changes everything…

I breathe.

I breathe in your smile.

I breathe in your sparkle.

I breathe in your love,

For me,

That doesn’t exist.

That never will.

 

I breathe.

I breathe out a happiness.

I breathe out a joy.

I breathe out a life,

Wishing for more.

I breathe out a shimmer,

That keeps me glowing in the dark.

I breathe out a love,

You don’t see,

You don’t know,

You never will.

 

My breath shows my heart to you,

Bare and vulnerable.

My breath lies upon your cheek.

My breath whispers in your ear.

My breath flutters upon your lips.

But you never feel my breath.
