Hurts to breathe

Updated on March 26, 2010

Some days are darker than others,

Where it hurts to even breathe.

I feel my lungs caving in,

With every breath I struggle to take.

I part my lips as air escapes,

The only sound is wind rushing out.


Each day I struggle to go on,

Loosing you is more than I can bare.

I thought I was prepared to say goodbye,

But now I just feel empty inside.


I’ve tried to move on,

Learning to breathe on my own again.

But it hurts to breathe alone,

Without you by my side.


I know that you’re gone,

I pushed you to leave.

But how do I go on,

When it hurts to even breathe?
