The Air we Breathe

once in a while

once in a while my breath is forgotten

once in a while my breath is forgotten my lungs scream for air

once in a while my breath is forgotten my lungs scream for air but even then,

once in a while my breath is forgotten my lungs scream for air but even then, the numbness eventually wins

once in a while

once in a while I lie there

once in a while I lie there shrouded by the dark

once in a while I lie there shrouded by the dark lungs devoid of oxygen

once in a while I lie there shrouded by the dark lungs devoid of oxygen a body without a soul

but

but once in a while

but once in a while the very air i neglect

but once in a while the very air i neglect always seems to find a way

but once in a while the very air i neglect always seems to find a way to seep through the cracks

but once in a while the very air i neglect always seems to find a way to seep through the cracks and fill the sails

a ship now propelled by mirthful winds

a ship now propelled by mirthful winds roaming the world free and without restraints

a ship now propelled by mirthful winds roaming the world free and without restraints and it always makes me wonder:

a ship now propelled by mirthful winds roaming the world free and without restraints and it always makes me wonder: why would I ever abandon life?
