I can’t breathe – A poem

Is feeling…

Powerless.

Tantamount.

To silence, irrelevance…

Death?

I can’t breathe.

Is feeling…

As if my

presence, countenance

is inconsequential?

I can’t breathe.

Minimized… Hypnotized

by

the venom

of what is…

As it

metastasizes.

I can’t breathe.

Raging…

against the duality

that entertains and suffocates…

In short order.

I can’t breathe.

Laughter masks the pain.

As I stand…

In stationary oscillation

weary, haggard

I fall… Because.

I can’t breathe.

Let's get your 2 cents worth ...
