Breathe

Breathe

A Poem by Wallflower

I miss you so much I forget to breathe.

Like the memories

hold my lungs hostage.

Like I'm impaled

every time I try to exhale,

so I hold it all in

until the thump in my chest

reminds me

that the only thing left

to do

is to let go

of every last bit

of You.

the 'you' becomes more personal between the first and the last line, which tells a (the?) story of "Synergy" and "Breathe"...(I really hate it when i get these things wrong.)...anyway, that's what good poets do, is write about the adventures of the heart...nice to see you
