Look Forward

By Alanarchy

Breathe in, she said

Hold it in for ten seconds and breath out

Ponderous, this birth
Of soul within soul
Florescent in flashes
And I can't control the way my chest

Expands out

Contracts in

Like a shutter covers lens for
But a moment and then

Breath out and hold
That empty inside of you for a moment

Because that next breath
Is something
You can look forward to.


Hi, everybody.
It's been awhile :)

    I can go on and on about how it’s good to see you post again, but I’ll simply say....your writing has grown. You’ve always been one of my favorites, and this was beautiful.
