Quote of the Day: Do Not Hold Your Breath For Anyone

Do not hold your breath for anyone,
Do not wish your lungs to be still,
It may delay the cracks from spreading,
But eventually they will.
Sometimes to keep yourself together
You must allow yourself to leave,
Even if breaking your own heart
Is what it takes to let you breathe.

— Erin Hanson

I wanted to share this quote, because while gathering quotes for one of my poems, it spoke to me. I will probably write a poem that is inspired by this.

Dark, Sinister

In the forest darkness creeping
Hating all that is alive, breathing
The thing is hiding somewhere
Can you taste in the cold in the air

All light it eats
A hater of light, all good things
When there in the dark is something
Can you see this place darkening

Destroying everything in its path
A dark, sinister presence
In to this house seeping
Can you feel it creeping
