One breath
can flip that panic switch
one smell
one trigger
i can’t breathe
not through my nose
not through my mouth
i can’t breathe
why don’t i get to breathe
why don’t i get to be calm
why can’t i have a life worth living
i can’t handle more of this
and yet i’m expected to again and again
to handle more

how am i supposed to get
ANYWHERE
LIKE THIS
i miss living
i can’t breathe
at least let me breathe
so I can eat something
please
