Breathless
by Chelse  Elliot

Breathless 
I stay here.... 
For now... 
Wondering
Alone...very 
Afraid...ahhh 
Free.......fa-l-li-ng
Blindly...reaching 
Below me...above me 
Touching......empty air
I feel a feather of warmth 
caress my cheek... 
I turn toward...nothingness
My face burns, 
Shame...anger 
Anger...ANGER... 
SUFFocating angst
Sinking...gasp...ing 
....barely breathing... 
My soul whispers, 
"Shhhhhh...breathe" 
....I can breathe.. for them
Shallow breath..by breath... 
The cold stinging rain fades into a vivifying mist... 
....humming a lullaby...caressing my soul 
The sun kisses my tired eyes...the warmth is real... 
.....I stand...I breathe... 
For me
