It's as if the breath that i was holding onto,
For a mere 20 seconds,
Was life giving me the chance to take a pause.
A pause from this mad world.
A pause from my incessant attempt to grasp just a mere fist of oxygen
to put back into my lungs.
A pause from all my worries.
As i stared straight ahead,
the passing 1, 2, 3 seconds felt like 4, 5, 6 minutes.
And, Oh! How i wish i could never breathe again,
if it meant that i could dwell in that pause,
in that serene moment,
where nothing, but the sound of my dwindling heart rate can be heard.
But i can't, can i ?
My time was up
and unless i desired to end everything then and there,
I was to breathe again;
To open the door to chaos once more
and to invite my dear friend, Insanity, inside for some tea perhaps.
Because i wasnt ready to go.
And so just like the sun cannot stay up forever,
I couldn't keep holding my breath
For, in the end, i am left to face the monsters the moon releases, as it rises,
leaving the sun in the dark,
as well as my small moment of sanity.
