Flightless Bird

Flightless Bird

You remind me of the air that fills my lungs,
so necessary in one moment
gone without warning in the next.
I thoughtlessly crave you..pulling you in.
To hold you forever would satisfy my craving,
and kill me all at once.
So I release.
You now occupy the space around me
making the hairs aback my neck rise
shooting chills down my spine.
Instantaneously the craving is back
forcing me to inhale.
I hold my breath,
I refuse to breathe anything but you.
As the room starts to spin
I gasp, searching for you in the space surrounding me.
When I can not feel you;
I gasp again...and again...and again
my chest begins to compress
stumbling upon the first realization that you are gone.

It's easier to breathe now
but it doesn't feel the same.
I don't reject that which keeps me alive
I do though, search for you within every breath
longing for just one more moment
of a familiar feeling filling my lungs.
I'll hold it inside a second longer
because I swear I can feel you
in less than a fraction of the universe time
you so gracefully returned to me
leaving just as quickly

I have taken approximately 36,816,360 breaths since I last felt you
And I still search the space every time I breathe
