the weight of the
oxygen tank
outweighed the
baggage of our
previous lives

we couldn't breathe
between the dreams
so we hold each
other, suffocating

fulfillment -
it's a reminder
that yesterdays
bring us regrets

leave us stuck
in dead-end jobs
with no room

(is that what you want for us?)
to squeeze out the
desire for dreams -

for a life where
you can leave
that oxygen
tank behind

and learn to breathe
on your own

a/n: inspired by a dream. for in theory: he suggested I write on this dream.
