"How Does Breathing Hurt"

Help me understand how breathing can hurt

To understand the stalking burn that

lies, patiently waiting, behind every memory.

Explain to me how a still sleep will

tire it and make it leave.

Don't turn the beast on me and let it haunt my

every waking moment.

Will your face not be outlined in every shadow I see?

Tell me again how I'm not worth

the fight for breath.

Perhaps repetition will help me comprehend

and accept your selfishness.

You made me,

now don't destroy me by removing all that I live for

and have grown to love

since my first day.
