Breath

Breath

I breath deeply and hold,
this isn’t so hard, 
it’s relative ease making me bold.

Slightly harder now,
 pulse pounding in my head,
sweat rolling down my brow.

I could really use some air,
 this isn’t a good idea,
I fall into my chair.

My lungs pleading for help,
my urge to inhale,
I’m about to yelp.

My vision is blurry,
I really should stop, 
I’m beginning to worry.

I let out a little,
I’m mad at myself,
too noncommittal 

It’s too much,
I can’t take it,
I held it for 2 minutes, clutch.

I exhale fast,
the first breath is amazing,
releasing all the air I had amassed.

I underappreciated breath,
it is so common,
but without it there’s death

It’s amazing something so easy to get,
is so hard to keep.
