Deep breath

the intermission
between moments
of boredom
when being
forces oneself
to examine
each fleeting second
beneath the microscope
of existential time

what is this?

why am I me
rather than you?

where am I going?

while the angst
pushes against
my soul
and all reality
turns toxic
with lungs plunged
into the void
of infinity

please...

give me oxygen

oxygen...
