#OctPoWriMo – Day 16 – Fear of Unfeeling

hand

 

keeping the balance,
I longed to feel nothing
then I became the undertow,
when air was too heavy
to walk through let alone
inhale

when feeling nothing
meant a soul sucking emptiness
and fluttering from one
stimulating garden
to the next until I felt safe
to exhale again

                   -they said to keep breathing
