Breathe, when those around you are laced with syrup smiles
Breathe, when shattered tears are lost as past memories
Breathe, when the stratosphere is ripe with crisp optimism
Breathe, when others bestow upon you their own breath
Breathe, when there is nothing remaining to complete
Breathe, when you sense the darkness ripping
Breathe,when your eyelids feel like slipping.
Don’t breathe, when you’re submerged beneath murky gloom
Don’t breathe, when poison whispers through the atmosphere
Don’t breathe, when Death searches for a victim
Don’t breathe, when light-speckled cities far below call for you to try to fly
Don’t breathe, when smothered by harrowing lies
Don’t breathe, when air isn’t there.
