Breathe Again

once,
not too long ago,
i felt
alive.

but,
perhaps that was just
a dream
i shared
with you
&
you
& you too.

i have run
479
consective
marathons
holding my breath and
waiting
for that
spark.

my legs are still strong,
and
my feet feel like feathers.

i could run 479 more
but,

I
will
stop
now.

i will stop
and
close my eyes
and
breathe
again
….like i did
before my first step.

I’m so greedy,
I will breathe again,
and again,
and again, and again…

slowly
………..

deeply
………..

passionately
………..

i breathe again,
and open my eyes:

the race is over.

my journey has finally begun.
