Alrighty, hour two is upon us, and I’m so excited to see how this goes I am sorting through all the prompts I have at arms reach and the one I’m most excited to tackle right now is from the prompt journal “I am Incomplete Without You” by Iain S. Thomas of Iwrotethisforyou.me
“Write a poem in which the word “breathe” appears three times” and I’ve mixed it with the prompt “who stayed” from pages 13, and 134 respectively.
Darling, sometimes you just have to breathe
first thing in the morning and again several times
throughout anything even remotely resembling a day.
And in doing so, it is up to you to remember
that not everyone stays around through the times
like this, not everyone knows how or has the extra
bandwidth to help you through it. But those who do,
like the cabbage man, the one who makes you tea
on cold days, and the one who buys your books despite
having helped to create them – those are the people who
make the breathing worth it. Who keep us on track and
heal the hearts we didn’t know even needed healing.
Sometimes, all you really can do is, breathe.
