TBPL Staff Poetry “Gasping Forwords” By Shauna Kosoris


Breathe in.
Alive. Healthy.
Happy. Single.
Meeting. Coffee.
Waiting. Hoping.

Breathe Out.
Disappointment. Toil.
Patience. Together.
Separated. Longing.
Reunited. Routine.

Breathe in.
Busy. Misunderstanding.
Impatience. Aloofness.
Exasperation. Confrontation.
Crying. Heartbreaking.

Breathe out.
Alone. Single.
But alive. And healing.
