Breath 2/4

Certain animals

in deep saves

don’t have eyes

 

they’ve never seen light

so they don’t know they’re blind

 

certain men

with deep hearts

don’t have eyes

 

they let themselves look

so they didn’t know

 

what it felt like

to see someone

 

they actually

truly,  care about

 

Certain fish

in deep seas

live their lives

 

underwater, never knowing

what its like

to not be able to breath

 

certain men

live in those seas

with the fish

 

believing the sensation some

call “drowning”, to simply be

breathing

 

I have live 21 years,

which is 7,666 days, or

183,960 hours, or

11 million minutes

600 million seconds

 

and for each one

of those precious moments

I have been drowning

 

calling salt water,

fresh air

 

and on soft sheets

with a bead of sweat

dripping down my chest

 

I felt sunrays

between my fingers

 

and I took my first breathe

 

and learned how breathing felt

learned how I should have been

learned about the world

I want to live in

 

Now this animal

has emerged from his cave

and looks at the sun

 

whispering, pleading,

 

“don’t stop shining

I’ve seen the light

I don’t want to go back

I can breathe now

 

you are my sun

warm me, love me

and don’t you ever stop

 

let me pull you close

give me air

breathe love,

life

breathe yourself into me,

 

So I can hold my breahte

and always feel the effect

you have on me

 

love me. give me breath”
