They Say to Keep Breathing

inhale

 

 

the balance,
I long to feel nothing
when I become the undertow,
when air is too heavy
to walk through let alone
inhale

when feeling nothing
means soul sucking emptiness
and fluttering from one
stimulating garden
to the next until you feel safe to
exhale

they say to keep breathing
