Breath

A bubble of air

That's all I need

To live.

                                                                                                    

One tiny breath

Could break the silence

In my chest.

                                                                                     

Could clear the darkness

That I'm slipping into

Could fade the redness

In my head.

                                                                                                  

Could make my heart

Again start pounding

One breath.

One single little bubble.

                                                                                    

Is that so much to ask?

The End
