When I met you
You took my breath away
In retrospect
I should have just walked away
And started breathing again

Anxiety
is a breath never released
suffocation of the lungs
and the whole of your mind
Anxiety
is a clock
that never stops ticking
with the constant click, from past to present
Time never ends
and oh darling
nor does anxiety.

Don't freshen your breath.

Make your breath fresh!

27th May 2014

Inspired by bad breath
This is my writing and not a poem.  It started as a joke on Facebook which caused a reaction by many. I felt compelled to add this memorable piece to my collection which is clearly not loved however viewed by many.  I guess it must be the title.  As much as 11.3k views on 17th Nov 2014 and I don't think it has peaked!  By the way, I am a gifted poet but this is not a poem.  This is just me being me.  Read further down for my epic poems. "Wolf of Wall Street", "Charlie Sheen", "Black, Brown, Yellow & White", "The Dude", "Jack", "Cubism", "Cigarette". Actually most of my poems are epic!  Trust me when I say that there is no poet quite like me.  I really am the chosen one.

9.1k views on 5th Nov 2014. Holy Moly :-)

9.2k views on 6th Nov 2014.  I think it's about time I put the above into context.  What I'm trying to say is brush your teeth instead of using mints, chewing gum and mint spray to freshen your breath.

Marked by imperfections
weathered by Time,
will your sturdy branch hold
the weight carried unwillingly
for so long?


One weary foot
chasing another
an infertile vicious cycle
unable to be tempered

Solemn face cast downward
cruel anticipation
bright slaughterhouse
a little ways down a
meandering dusty road
unbeknownst to most

Breathe once more,
Deafening gusts of
mockingly jaded motifs
fill your aching lungs.

Finale.

Loveless departure;
please do not disturb
this final resting place
for unseeing eyes

The moon is bright today!
musings echo vacancies
Cast into the wind.

There is no moon in the sky.

i adore life
this breath
this moment
gratitude fills me

thoughts of you make me breathless,
like walking into a steam sauna too hot
seeing you causes my knees to go weak,
blood rushing to that secret spot
that only you know how to touch and finger
driving me wild as you stop and linger
crescendos of pleasurable torment
until you see I'm finally spent
Oh God! I'll never have enough of you
baby take my breath, it's all for you

Hayley Cusick Nov 2014

that last breath you took,
was it for me?
or did you waste it begging for bravery?

my love, so small, it used to fuel me
SRS Jul 2014

I hope your guilt strangles you like a Boa Constructor,
until you have no breath,
I hope before you die though that you realized,
It was you who caused your death.

I feel like you should have guilt, but I know you don't.

To live life in its fullest
To taste the grapes of joy
To drink their wine in glasses
To feel the sweet drops,
And enjoy.

To be enchanted,
Drunken with delight,
To see the brightness of the stars,
During the dark, mysterious, cold night…

I dream of happiness and laughter,
Of rainbows shining in the sky
I dream my tears are turning into roses.
They're dropping on my pillow as I cry.

I dream of green fields, and I'm running
I feel the wind stroking my cheeks.
It dries my tears and softly whispers:
"You must break free of all your fears".

I close my eyes and I am swallowed.
Consumed,
By a gigantic salty wave
And I am floating, not resisting,
I'm only trying to be brave…

Inside the sea, deep in the darkness
I see my past, my present and my dreams,
And there's a voice, floating beside me,
It tells me: "nothing's as it seems".

At times I'm chocking, and I'm drowning
I'm praying for the coziness of death,
But when it doesn't come, I realize that
All I need,
Is a deep breath.

Teach me to Breathe

I remembered her—
Voice, soft, warm summer water,
First breeze ever felt.

I like the way
Your breath feels
On my neck

I wish that I
Could feel it
Again

Mary Christopher Apr 2014

Breathe in,
Breathe out.
Take a deep breath.
Keep breathing.
Breathe in,
Breathe out.
What am I going to do
When the only reason I was breathing
Was you?
