Words remind me to breathe

I dive into the words

and lose myself

in someone else’s world

for awhile.

Sometimes reading

is more necessary than

eating

drinking

sleeping.

When my headandheart

split or

argue or

feel weary

words

patch me up again.

Words remind me to

breathe.

They force me to

feel.

They close the circle of

self

when the balloon

is punctured.

Words bring back

the leaking air and

reinflate the lungs.

Words remind me

to breathe.
