Carried Away by the Wind

Carried Away by the Wind

And then the air

left both my lungs

as I gasped

for the breath

that no longer cared

to be held

so close,

but wanted release

toward a freedom

I couldn’t fathom

beyond broken spaces

in my chest

where the organ

played its final song

called collapse.
