A Pause, A Respiting Soul

Releasing weight from my shoulders, if only for a short time

Allowing myself to take a step off to the roadside, to inhale deeply and breathe

Veins draining darkness, flowing outward

Puddles forming at my feet, soaked soles, a respiting soul

A pause, a blink of an eye, the second hand passes twelve in slow motion

I glance backward, gaze forward, stepping back out into traffic

And continue on, grateful for the short opportunity to breathe
