Oxygen

img_8521flckrin a dark forest
I see my breath in the moonlight
exhaling words
that slowly float upwards in front of me
other people’s pain and frustration
filtered by my ears and eyes
I watch them vaporize into the crispy air
like snowflakes disappear into the warm ground

insignificant facts
twisted meanings
unheard truths
and anger
that punches you right into your stomach
and leaves you out of breath

they say forests are the lungs of the Earth

so this is what they meant
