b r e a t h e

it’s a thought
(quiet, still)
that moves you 
from calm to 
(fear)

 

it’s a motion
(abrupt, small)
that warns of 
(panic)

 

it’s your heart
(afraid, pounding)
that traps you
(here)

 

it’s a gasp
(startled, desperate)
that frees you from 
(despair)

 

it’s a tear
(wet, relieved)
tells you it’s
over; that you’re
(free)
