The world said to me
come up for air
there are hearts and souls out here
people with love
and brightness
please don’t let go, slide back
there is no bottom, only
despair, darkness
dreams unlived
come up for air
breathe with solid comfort
with eyes open
the idea
of emptiness filled
of motions
movements attempted
come up for air
feel the expanse, the
vast, the
universe-sized expectation
that is only love
and possible through it
evil is an outlier
a heretic, an unbeliever
come up for air
and live…
we know that it is easy
automatic to be the dead
don’t be the dead, the alive
dead, the breathing
empty that
seems so comforting
come up for air
