Remember to breathe.

Breathe the hollow remains of unspoken words.
Inhale the scent of sorrow and invisible hope.

Remember to breathe.

Pull the ear-splitting silence into your fragile body.
Reject the comfort, inhale the deep blue misery.

I can't breathe.

Draw my disappointment in through your unwilling mouth.
Forget the placidity of the past, absorb the harsh truth.

I forgot to breathe.

I like how the stanzas make it choppier, but in a good way. Did you mean for it to be in like a breathing rhythm?, because that's the impression I got. Good work!
