Statue

You see
it wasn’t like I
couldn’t breathe,
and it wasn’t like I had been
holding my breath.

I was a statue,
waiting when you walked by
and you were a tornado
tearing your way through me.

It was like
suddenly
in that fleeting moment,
life happened.

  1. You have that ability to make simple words stand out in amazing sentences, that paint images so vividly. Its beautiful.
    My favourite part: “and you were a tornado, tearing your way through me”.
