As I breath

Dedicated to Tiffany

As I breath

As I breath
I feel you

I slowly exhale as my lungs crack
like they are embroiled in winter air

The steam of my breath pushes out
As I close my eyes

My backwards heart pounds
Please don’t break me

A man
A broken man

I push through tears,
Heavy breath
And stand here

A man
A hopeful man

I bear the scars on my heart
I gladly rip them open again

For you
I give you my feeble backwards heart
You may hold it as long as you like

But I stand,
I stand here for you

A man
An imperfect man

But a man
A man who worships you
A man who waits and wants
Only for you


I love you
