Take a Deep Breath

(You have to read this one out loud)

Take a Deep Breath

.

And speak the memory of a foreign shore

Where pastels spilled on water stroked your back

In slow exhale to revisit once more

The visible eyes in a bedroom of black

Amazed that they loved you before

The lips found the words that they lacked.
