One Deep Breath

Posted: December 8, 2020 in Uncategorized

One deep breath
and I come to my senses
realize they betray me.

I breathe in to feed them
return the air to the great out there
feel my sanity float away.

Separating mind and body
you from my arms
tangled up in words.

Struck dumb by my inability
to make you understand
an effort predestined to fail.

Given cosmic circumstance
letting go that need
means giving up control.

Traumatic psychic injury may ensue
mind reels ego falls into dead faint
all that wasted breath.
