Breathing | Teen Ink

everytime you looked at me
i struggled to stay real still
'cause my breath lingers around my lungs
but never seems to fill

never did i think to open my heart
to what was really in front of me
your beautiful smile opening my mind
to everything that made me see

holding my complacency with past heartbreak
but never wanting to let go
if i told you that i loved you
could i keep you and not let go?

shared these thoughts of imperfection
and how it makes us think
that the world is but a place of people
where breathing air we drink
