Breathe

By , ON, Canada
Breathe;





In and out.




Chest rising,




Chest falling.




So simple.




Yet so complicated.




Many things are like this.


On the outside a simple action,


But inside





A compelling puzzle.





Breathe;





In and out.





Up and down,





Speed racing.






Hearts racing.





Except, why is it so?



How can you explain it?

Is this what it’s supposed to feel like?
I hope so,
Because it’s amazing.



Breathe;




In and out.




Faster still,



Constantly.




I see now.



All the way over there.


Farther than anyone.


I know that this will work, it has to.
I want it,





And I also… want you.



Breathe;


In and out.

Steady now,


There’s no rush.




It was lies.



Everything ever said.



I thought I knew the truth.

I thought I could trust you, forever.

But I can’t,
I never really could.




Breathe;




In an out.



Tear falling,

Then one more.




All alone;





But perhaps it’s better.



I expect it is not.


Yet I’ve been wrong before, so maybe?

I can dream,





And for now that’s enough.


Breathe;





In and out.




Things are calm,




So am I.



The puzzle;



It is still compelling,
And I’m going to solve it.

But first, there is another question.

So I ask,




Who will I solve it with?



Breathe;
In and out.



I’ll be fine,

I know this.




I have time.


Time to solve the puzzles.
And I will, every one.
And I have time to find that person.
And I will.
And if not, I’ll be ok.

Breathe





In and out.




Chest rising,




Chest falling.
