Breathe In…

Draw a breath,

Slow, constant, steady,

Fill my lungs with cool, sweet air

Hold.

Balance, 

For just this moment

For the blink of an eye

I am light

I am air

Calm

Serene

Content

Relax, 

Languid

Gentle

Breath like

Blowing out a candle’s flame

But it only

Dances in the breeze

Exhale

Empty, 

Purged

Of the dark

Of the knots

Of the wrong.

Hold.

And for this moment

Balance

Lights flickering 

On the inside of my eyelids

Stars in my brain

Winking

Breathe in…

Hold.

Breathe out…
