breath into you

Posted in Expression in poetry on 05/12/2011 by markcalles

its the end of the school year. its that much closer to getting back to california for the holidays. its the end of the year. its the end of some things ive made. this piece is a bit of a comment on all those things. read it directly. read it heavily metaphored. make the personal impersonal. vice versa it. give it some humanity. take that away. you think its one thing, but its another. and another. and another. and…


The closer it gets, the further from here I feel.

I’ve got some breath that belongs to you.

So let’s fill up before I go.


Bought the ticket, I’ve made my deal.

The ways and whys, I’ve paid my due.

But you don’t even know.


No, you’ll never really know.

How I willed you.

Will you?
