I Inhale, I ExhaleDay in and day out,I wander,aimless,Through my day which is filledWith deadlines and expectations.I file through the dayThrough paper and through people,A smile, a laughTo keep others happy.I act like nothing's wrong,like I still have life inside.Like I feel like ICan breath through another day.I pretend to talk,To gossip, to have lifeOnly to give lifeTo the beings around me.I inhale, I exhale.I lived through another day.And continue to hideThe fact that IAm hiding allThe time.
BreatheWhen you took my hand,Smoothly yet nervously,My heart skipped a beat,And I recognized my humility.But your grip grew strong,With hands clammy with sweat,And I realized I couldn'tGet awayFrom the sweet soundYour voice makes,Caressing me with the twistsAnd the turns.I could neverRun away from the hurt.Run away from the sting,And the agony in it all.Because loves is an open woundThat you continue to scratch,And you'll never let itBreath.
OkayI write to keep'My mind off you.Not to entertain,Or to aid another one.To be honest, not even for message.Only to helpKeep the emotionAt bayYet I fail to even do that.
From the BooksPeople gain pleasureFrom what other people lack.You may think this is cruel,But these behaviors are learned.As a child, you skipped'Round a circle with friends"Ring around the Rosie"And laughter unite as one.As you discover the truthResounding from this,Don't be too hard on yourself;Every good pupil uses his textbook.
Winking In My MindI thought that thingsWere better now –Over, that’s it, done.But now I seeIt will never die,And you’ll never let me be.You’ll stand there, winkingIn my blank, empty mind –Gray and very dull.All I can seeIs the softness of an IWhose softness has betrayed.Standing with youStand the two of them,Smiling, my lovely friends.Just as I think“We’ve come so far”I discover the confusion.You will never leaveMy empty mind;Without you, there’s nothingThere.But please be kindWhile you’re still hereWinking in myMind.
