Slowly Breathing Out

For this common place assignment, I chose to do something a little bit different. I am sharing a poem I recently wrote, which describes holding in pain and mixed feelings.

Inhale

Exhale

Inhale

*pauses*

      Holds Breath In

   Don’t know if ready to breath out

Inhaling mixed emotions;

Feelings.

   Urging to say something, but couldn’t.

  Inhaling the arguments,

The drama

Foolishness

Constantly trying to stay out

       Still getting dragged in

 

   Inhaling the negative surroundings,

Bad vibes

   Trying to keep afloat,

Still drowning.

       Inhaling worries

   Fears

Afraid people will know

But surely will find out

Inhaling the accusations

Assumptions

Thinking you owe the world an explanation,

But really don’t.
