Every breath we take

Every breath we take

A Poem by Kesha
"

.....

"
Sometimes you don't want to
look over your shoulder,
Because you don't want to remember
where you've been.

Or remember that time
You left me behind
And said it was better this way.

Sometimes you don't want to
look over your shoulder,
Because you can't face reality
Because you're just as cowardly
as the rest of us.

So you keep your head up,
You keep moving forward.

And you don't care
That it was me looking for you.

You don't care
That it was me weaving
stars into your hair
And planting flowers
On the ground that you tread upon.

Our lives change
With every breath we take.

But it seems that I can't
Catch my breath.

Because I'm kneeling here
Waiting for you to remember

...me

Honest and strong words. I felt the emotions of need and want. Sometime we can't get what we want. Haunt our mind and heart. Thank you Kesha for sharing the amazing poetry.

No problem :)
The title reminded me of the novel 'Every Breath You Take' by Judith Mcnaught which is one of my favs ;) :)

I think it's not about being cowardly, it's about really facing it.. maybe not looking back keeps that small shred of hope alive which would have been otherwise if we did look back...

I agree too, our lives do change with every breath we take... or with the lack of someone's breath in our lives...
Nicely penned, Kesha. :)
