Breathing Deeply

Walking slowly.

Up so high.

On these egg shells.

Walking so slowly

Trying not to fall.

Feeling my skin cut to pieces.

Breathing deeply.

Staying calm.

Not knowing.

How much more

I can take.

Losing my balance.

Giving up hope.

Reaching for your hand

Falling…

Falling…

Falling…

Your hand never

Reaching.

The ground

Coming closer.

Breathing deeply

I see you let go.

Breathing deeply

I close my eyes.
