Loss of Breath

My Broken Heart

I was suffocating

because your love

took my breath away.

But now my lungs are

contracting inwards

because you are gone.

They swell with

memories of us

happy together.

And they shrink with

the knowledge of

your absence.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Inspired by: Life is about gasping for air and letting your lungs swell with music and shrink with sadness.
