A Poem by Sage Gabrielle

i played around with the format again. whoop whoop.


If air is a fluid, then I am slowing drowning in all these


in an attempt to revive me.

If love is a drug, then I am going through withdrawal.

(I think that’s accurate.)

I’ve woken up in the middle of the night,
      skin saturated in cold sweats,
      absorbing back into my flesh �"
pointless purging

          i n h a l e


                                 e x h a l e

If air is a fluid, then I am drowning every time these psych majors say


Humans are 70% water, and
in a room filled with fluid, it sure is
empty of you.

Its written creatively by playing with the shape of the text to slow down the readers eyes to rythyms of breathing etc. It seems to be a poem of intense self awareness breathing sweating drowning in emotions. Poetry maybe helped get you through to the morning light! Talented self-expression Sage!

This is so unique and original. I love how you use breathing as dragging this out, and how it expressed love not found, just waiting. Love keeps us all spiritually alive, so I think drowning in air is what we're doing when we don't have it. Oh and the interesting format is great. Loved this, keep it up.
