Unfamiliar

Caged
Enclosed
Desperate to break out.
Break free.
Slip into a new skin
Its strangely familiar
It's warm
It's alive.
Heartbeat
It falters.
It threatens to give in
It falls out of rythm.
Breath.
Frosted in the night air
Shallow
Barely there
Take in another
Good. Let it out.
Not so good.
Hold it
Don't breathe
Don't speak
Don't feel.
