"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor."
Desmond Tutu 1931

I breathe you in as if this is my first

time, my first time

taking a deep breath,

I won’t lie

I’ve been holding in that sigh of relief

Since we parted ways last

It may not have been long but

It felt like forever

All I want is for you to be

The air I breathe

I’ve never found someone

Who I hold my breath till

I see them again

I know I’m not the only one

Who lets out a sigh of relief

Only to feel safe for

What is never enough time

The author's comments:

Feeling safe is not simple in the world we live in but I'm lucky to have a few people who make me feel safer by simply making eye contact.
