Now Reading
breathless

breathless

more than a breath of fresh air
inhaling for the first time
how does one survive so long without oxygen?
gasping for more
drawing into my lungs
every word
this new language
from a foreign tongue
drowning
in a melody
of someone else’s song
resuscitated, but still
afraid to exhale
safer behind a mask
hold tight the peace
better to black out
than give in
lose consciousness
not your heart
