Holding My Breath

My Broken Heart

I don't know how 

I didn't die when 

I held my breath 

for 12 straight hours 

waiting to hear your voice.


And when you spoke,

I exhaled a sigh of relief.


You had no idea 

the tears I cried

into the night

thinking it was over.


I wish I never met you

because the thought 

of losing you 

is unbearable.


Now that I know you,

I want you in my life,

but it seems you don't 

feel the same way.


I don't mean anything to you

otherwise you would have known 

that a day without you

is more than I can handle.
