to breathe

Unfocused
Unsure
Unrelenting
Unable to

My fingers clawing at the invisible cell
The inability to fully breathe
A prisoner of my own mind
My heart numb, empty

Life continues
We still cannot breathe
All we want is for one pure breath
To not feel suffocation

And then

My mind pauses
My heart stills
My breath calms
And I inhale, deeply, peacefully, completely

Oh to breathe
Without fear of consequence
Without pain
Without longing

Oh, to just breathe
