a battle for balance,
regeneration versus decay;
build up, break down.

And fourteen pounds
of barometric pressure
weighing on my chest
keeps my lungs breathing -
in... out...

Fighting fit
today I am weak,
watching you -
the Strong -
making your peace,
embracing your death
in the white flag
of a kiss.
