Breathe

I’ve forgotten
how to breathe
more times
than I am
comfortable with
of late.

Because you’re gone
and the further away
you move the harder
it is for me to push
the air out of my lungs.

Because you moved
toward me so slowly
but were upon me
so fast that you
stole the air
straight from
my lungs.

Because you
popped up
in that way
that you do
and took
my breath away
with such ease.

I’ve forgotten
how to breathe
more times
than I am
comfortable with
of late.
