Love struggles for breath

when forced to look at herself

She lives purely so others

can smile in their mirrors

But, often, she is

confronted by apathy

upon reflection

I found myself today

I had been lost in the moment

as I walked toward a distant light

I looked upward to see the most brilliant blue

but not to feel it; I breathed deeply

without holding my shallow breath

Beauty filled these brimming eyes as

I stood before an ever-changing world

I saw the hope of my future while

the despair of my past faded from view

And although death’s darkness had

stolen irretrievable bits of my heart

life firmly grasped my waiting hands

We’ll pay the cost

by what we have lost

The feel of a definite shift

a change in the air; souls adrift

As if  breath has been sucked from our chest

we’re left wondering; is this real or just a test

 Everyone has a price to pay

some over time; others, all in one day

No one gets away

Flagging

Right down the middle

you broke my red heart

There’s just empty white space

between the two rusted parts

It can’t be filled

everything falls through

No longer whole

my breath turns blue
