I can’t breathe by Sonya McKinzie


In love

And I can’t breathe

Unable to control

My emotions

All in my emotions

And it feels like

I have known you a lifetime

I need

To breathe

Without you

Because I did it before

Now it seems as if

I cannot breathe one breath without you

How can I be


Its only been a few minutes

few hours

a few days

a few months

a few years

a few lifetimes

since I met you

And I need you

I am falling in love

I am in love

With you

I can’t breathe

If I am not with you
