I suck, suck it in through
Pursed lips as though
Stealing it, not wanting
To be caught because
It hurts… To breathe.

So I breathe quietly,
Careful not to move
Because it might run
Away and leave me
Alone on the sidelines
With my lips pursed.

Oxygen, clenched heart
Like teeth through
Unbearable pain
So I suck, suck it in
Because it hurts… To breathe
