Archive for the tag “breath”

one more breath of life

it seems we’ve had this conversation before
but it bears repeating
in case you missed it the first time

I can’t seem to remember
if the narrative was fact or fiction
but either way remains relevant this day and age

“you see there are hearts that are hurting
in such a way even open surgery
cannot remedy
in such a way that words or deeds or promises
are rendered useless”

if memory serves me right
the storyteller has eyes like infinite magnets
sparkling in night sky
playing both hero and villain
she laughs at the inevitable
whilst crying for one more breath of life

november two thousand eighteen
