Poem “Breathe Again” by Nicole Heinz

Does it ever end?

This feeling.

Like a nerve gone numb.

A pulse so quiet.

A smile so tense.

A mask locked into place Just a moment.

And it’s gone.

Like a shipwreck saved.


Breathe again.

Laugh again.

Keep on they say.

But the truth isn’t there.

It was the experience.

It was days It was in the seconds.

That never end.

It was the spur of the moment, And the lesson after.




I’m a mom and aspiring author of my first novel. I’ve also written many poems, and I so dearly love to share my work. I love life and try my best to appreciate the dark days of being alive and human. Writing is my therapy, and I love it with a passion. Bad times or good times, that’s my poison.
