    Act of Breathing
    By nastyjman


    Breathe in,
    fresh loaves by the sleeping sun.
    Salient sea whispering nearby;
    sparkling sands beneath our souls.

    Exhale,
    what we had left behind;
    what you had tried to forget;
    what I had fought to escape.

    Inhale,
    burning words searing through my ear;
    warming thoughts dancing in your darkness
    a touch warming the skin of our heart.

    Breathe out,
    family, friends and relatives;
    work, office, paper and plastic;
    homes, houses, lawns and home loans

    Alive,
    the heavens are
    while darkness crept,
    lulling the afternoon
    into sleep.
