Breath (Prose)

By JennyT, published on Oct 4, 2013 far away traffic bad, anxious, panting, blowing air can't wait, it's now, it's coming now the car not quite a manger but ~ matters how?

toiling hard under summer sun no doctors on this round she squats and helps deliver her new son upon the ground

by an empty lane alone she grabs her tummy, pain is real, she's scared she's young, as water pools around her feet crouches screaming till her baby breathes

so with every breath you take try not to use it too complain for breath AS LIFE ~ A PRECIOUS thing a commodity we shouldn't waste

What If?

By D. Sager, published on Jul 26, 2013

... a resuscitation of your life? Is this the greatest gift? To give my life for you? I've heard this sacrifice called the greatest love, do I pursue this divine commission?

What if we knew that our ways were best fulfilled in this purpose, holding each other above the water? What if my strength grew with helping you, and shrank if I used it to tread the water of my desire?

Then with a great heave I will lift you up, putting you on my shoulders to breathe, for your breath has become mine, and mine yours, and this is what we call living.
