Search for meaning


By: April Mae M. Berza 


to breathe the same air that you breathe
I share a part of me, a portion
of my existence

to feel the pulse of the clock
I must try to breathe not,
the more I gather strength
to feel, to heal, to seal
the less I am weak

time is dividing our breath,
our bread, our breed
to multiply us into one

the hands of the clock
is knitting our love story
but I am reluctant to play
my part in this tragedy.
