the other side of this breath

the long wait

between breaths

spells disaster or discovery

I could have a found a new road to recovery

shining streets of light

and a song that lasts past eternity

or a deeper chasm in which in fall

forget I was falling

and call home

the brush stroke of relief

is it heavy, labored, and distraught?

knowing there is no more life to live

or is it patient but potent

believing the next minute

is the one where we rise

tomorrow I may call myself forgotten

forgetting what I was named today

but for the next moment

let me see what’s on the other side

of this breath
