Life of the party

Take a deep breath

And hold it in for a few

Now breathe out

Feel her swarming around you

Trying to creep back in

To infuse herself into your life

But you refuse

You want to miss it

To have it grow more intense

Yet you are weak, and you miss it already

You’re like me

You took a deep breath

And you haven’t let it out since

    I like this poem – I’ve read it a few times now, and each time it feels as I’m reading it for the very first time. And tell me, if I may ask – what inspired you, what compelled you to write precisely these words, in this order – making it the piece it has become?

Tell me what you think
