Just Breathe..

Distant, yet so close

His aura penetrates my skin;

He does not notice all the strokes.

Depart, descend; what is there left to do?

He advances grief into my heart,

Pinning needles crisscross and out

With those big black eyes he stares right into my soul,

Don’t you see I’m hurting, the way you’re hurting too?

Waterfalls lead to a pool of  blood. One step I take

Won’t make the pain go away.

It’s like I’m in a shell, protective,

Yet for second, I am drowning.

A day later I take a deep breath

Everyday I wonder; Will I ever breathe again?
