A STILTED INHALE OF AIR: d’Verse Quadrille #171 (Gasp)

For this week’s d’Verse Quadrille Prompt, whimsygizmo aka De Jackson has encouraged us to compose a poem using the word “Gasp” or a variation thereof. Hopefully this poem below will leave you gasping for air in the best possible way! πŸ™πŸ˜πŸ€žπŸ“–


Her life was nothing more then
Than one prolonged gasp
A painful struggle for breath
A sudden; abbreviated intake of air
As if she were in a constant state of surprise
At her very existence
A stilted inhale
A fleeting exhale
Suck it in!

    1. Could be used to described that scenario M Jay but I was writing a poem from the perspective of a person who actually suffered from chronic breathing issues. But that’s the beauty of the prompt, you can interpret it anyway you like. πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ‘Œ
