"It's not the breaths you take, it's how you breathe"
-John Vladmir Ondrasik

Drop after drop the water falls,
From sky, from sink, from emotional brawls,
In an infinite loop of relentless motion,
Water ultimately falls right into the ocean.
An echo of splash haunts my sleep,
water and blood start filling the deep.
Senses all lost in the cosmic combine,
Only red can I see for the blood is of wine.
Pressure so great all feeling is gone,
And sound waves can never to far go on.
What’s left of my world but smell and taste?
So for those I breathed in and my maker I faced.

The author's comments:
I was at a party the day before i wrote this, and when i left it started to rain, I look up and a drop of water fell into my mouth. I was immediately startled and it inspired me to think about how the thing we rely on so greatly in life can easily kill us, just like the way a relationship can emotionally kill you.
