Swollen Breath

The more I sigh,
The more I exhale the pain
As it hovers close to my lips
Before dissolving 
Into the unaware.
Forget it, 
They’ll never care.
The more I breathe,
Reminds me that I’m still
Caught in reality.
Filling me down with despair,
I sigh again.


Grant-Grey Porter Hawk Guda

Powerful expression!
