I forgot to breathe

Tonight I’m empty
a brittle void
with the strain of saying
or not saying
I’ve nothing but minute words
It could have all been over
in a brief, inglorious moment
I think I forgot to breathe
I lost myself in rage, in sadness
grief overpowered me
Amassing every grain of my truth
I think I forgot that everything passes.
