You Take The Breath Right Out Of Me...

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!
