Don't Hold Your Breath

image by simplenut

When there was jealousy and desperation,
in the air I breathe,
It's because I breathe you like you were my oxygen,
Suffocating, struggling,
You were so breathtaking-
But I thought if one day,
You could be the air around me,
then I don't mind being a little breathless.

I have always been so sure that without you,
the world will turn airless for me.
But now I can find myself breathing the scent of green leaves,
Standing tall and taking in,
Of the air that wasn't you anymore

You aren't so breath-taking, even from the beginning,
I was just holding my breath.
