Underwater

Underwater

Last time I saw you
You dragged me down with you
Kicking and screaming
Until I was submerged
Too far
To resurface without the help of another
I swore then
That you would never touch me again
You made me terrified to swim

Here you are again
Hand outstretched
Apologizing for nothing
And calling me the coward
Your voice hitting me again and again
Like a skipping stone
Let us sink one more time
To the sharp rocky bottom
Until I forget how to breathe
Underwater

July 22nd – Breathe

And the poem for today!

Breathe

Take a breath
A deep one
Feel it inflate your lungs
Let it go now and
With it
Let it take your darkness
Unlock your tension
Release your stress
Take your anger
Bottle it up
And throw it out

Breathe

Let that simple function last
Have it bring you back to basics
Meditate if you want
Close your eyes
If you can waste time
Focusing on everything wrong
You have a minute to relax
And that’ll make you
Feel so much better
So take a breath
A deep one

Breathe
