I didn’t know what I was missing
Until I started breathing
Not air but gentle lightness
The kind that’s soft and freeing

Inhale, through the nose
Exhale, release
These cues that were once just words to me
Have become my body’s rules

Mind body connection
Means more when you breathe into…

Linger for a little while with me
In this space between
Sick and sentimental

Coughing up old habits
Like searching for daylight in darkness
And stars in a city night

Is it toxic tenderness
Or wistful nostalgia
That keeps these crossed out names
In the corners of an untold story
