Inhaling the Sky


,Image result for maroon sky


dirty, down

wondering why

water was so wet,

whether it was

sweat or rain,

sweltering heat or

pain inside sunken chests,

the weather was crying

tears not salty,

so strong it stung tender skin.


summon yourself

to face the surface sky,

a darkened maroon


head titled up,

inhale the tears

before it burns.
