A letter. Dysopnea. Lungs. Heart. You.

Dysopnea

a letter by teaunderthesea

dysopnea (noun.) /dispˈnēə/

shortness of breath and difficulty in breathing

They say, breathlessness is an unpleasant sensation.

It is an uncomfortable feeling. Your chest tightens, and breathing may actually hurt.

The reason for it is that your body needs more oxygen.

Your heart beats faster in order to pump oxygenated blood all over the body.

Something that was once normal has turned into a burden.

Breathing. Beating.

Lungs. Heart.

But, God, I will give the world to be breathless again because of you.
