I Breathe

Valeria Heine 'Red'

I force myself not to
love you,

then release you.

forgetting who I am

I will damn you
it’s for the best

plagued with loneliness

I am nothing.

I breathe and still

I am nothing.

pacing this world,
in fear of losing the
part of me that is yours
which, is also a stranger to me.

waiting for you–
yet love of my own

when will you release me?

I am waiting.
alone, with waiting alone

I still breathe.
