Life Is One Long Breath

Poem By Amber Smith

Life is one long breath
But, it can quickly leave- What will you have left?
Start with a rise and end with a fall
Your chest inflates and then becomes small
The invisible entering; swirling around
Then it is held after a faint sound
What seems like an enternity...
Yet is utter tranquility...
How is it to be described?
That feeling of peace after you've cried
The tention building; rising
Held tight, waiting for the perfect timing
You begin to feel the pain; Suffication
But, it's held stronger with full dedication
Panic, Tears Flow, Eyes Widen
Who will you stand with? Choose your siding!
One thought pops into mind, 'This is the end! '
Thinking cluttered, 'I want to make my mends! '
Then your racing mind crashes
Every last picture of your life flashes
And in that long breath- is your life...
Happiness, Pain, Laughter, and Tears.
You sob and try to switch gears
Your heart slows, your mind becomes silient
'That wasn't at all violent? '
As the pressure begins to lift- the invisible slowly climbs out!
Like water leaving a spout
Slowly everything begins to tingle
Your blood seems to stop and mingle
Your chest falls
The you see it......white walls!
You hear the ringing
The sound of a new begining!
With a turn of your head - a gaze behind you...
You whisper 'Someday you'll find life to be one long breath too! '

Great Summer

As the sun shines the warmth seeps to our souls
As the storm rides through the wrath cuts us down
As the snow blankets the world all seems too dead
As the spring peeks in we see life once again

Those Words! Those Words!

I don't expect you to fell my Pain
My Heart is torn, It has been Slain
Those Words, Those Words

One Wish

If i could have one wish
it would be to not wish
wishing is nothing but a waste of time
but yet to have one we would spend all your money- till the last dime

Window View

A dull voice goes faint; drifts away from my mind.
My eyes become drawn to the window for the 100th time.
Ever notice how hard it is to fathom such a thing;
A see-through, fragile, divider, keeps you away from that outside ring.

My Love..My Star!

To fine out that you loved someone is amazing
But, to find out to late is dazing!
Confussion sets in, how can i act on this now!
Its to late you say, but you have to let them know!
