Breath

Breath

by Allie Marie

 

You promise you’ll save me,

then you beg of my lungs to

hold my breath

for you.

 

Suffocation is at no cost

or so your voice tells me to

let you breathe

for me.

 

I am.  And I was.

I am.

You are.  You were.

You’ll come.

 

As I hold my breath to

one sweet last scent of air,

I close my eyes

to darkness.
