don’t forget to breathe

In the quiet of the shadow
In the corner of a room
Darkness moves upon you
Like a cloud across the moon

You’re a-wearing all the silence
Of a constant that will turn
Like the windmill left deserted
Or the sun forever burn

And all the suffering that you’ve witnessed
And the hand prints on the wall
They remind you how it’s endless
How endlessly you fall

And the answer that you’re seeking
For the question that you found
Drives you further to confusion
As you lose your sense of ground

Your whole life is here
No eleventh hour reprieve
Keep your head above water
But don’t forget to breathe

“Breathe” from Alexi Murdoch’s 2006 album, Time Without Consequence.
