Grasping the Air

Breath taken away

Falling, falling, falling down while standing in one place

Swirling thoughts,
Swirling emotions
A world spinning out of control

Reaching

Reaching out
Reaching up

Arms outstretched, palms open

Grasping
Groping
Grabbing
Pulling

Trying to hold on to something
anything

Trying to catch the breath lost
The time gone
The chances fleeting

Reaching out
Grasping
Clutched hands brought to the heart

A treasure thought to be held inside
To be opened

Bearing contents
the hope of treasure, 
peace, 
understanding

Open

Revealing nothing but air

Empty
Open

Free
