Talking through tightly held breath

Mumbling through the suffocating freedom

Words find their way


Through the gaps in her fingers

Air escaping right through the palm

Thoughts mixing with fogged sweat

Accumulated with my insecurities



How long will you hold my breath?

Until, I finally spit fire

Or until you find a way to strangle my mind


Well, at least we both fought it out

At least we tried to


I don’t blame you

For hands still hold your breath

Strong enough to make you hold mine


But I am selfish now

For all that I have ever seen


I guess that’s what we would finally bond on


But I wish, I really really wish

I wish someday it lets you breathe

Only to let me breathe.
