April Prompt A Day: April 2, 2016


I breathe in. I breathe out.
My breath is but a whisper.
It disappears on the breeze.
More visible than audible in the cool morning air.

I breathe in. I breathe out.
Each inhale and each exhale comes faster with each footstep.
I walk. I trot. I run. Faster and faster.
My shoes slap the pavement.

Mentally, those sounds are my hand across your face.
Thwack, thwack, thwack.
I could not, would not do it in person.
But a girl can always dream.

I breathe in. I breath out.
Your memory becomes a scream.
The pain no longer a whisper.
You're not welcome here.

Hush, hush. Inhale. Exhale.
I'm over you.
I breathe you in.
I exhale you out.
