oxygen | a poem for you

Oxygen is a poem about seeing the light in everything. It is also about knowing who and where I want to be in life whilst not being afraid to say, 'this is who I am, I am happy and whole - don't interrupt'. These are some of the most empowering words I have written to date and felt an urgency to share them here on geminiexplicit.


Lights flash
I beg that you'll appear in my dreams
Tell me everything I need to hear
Inhale hold exhale

Turning my face towards the sky
Opening my eyes
I feel your energy  
Breathe life into me
So I can live with my mind wide open 

Breathing in my oxygen 
I stare my fears in the face
And I no longer look for a sense of escape
As I become whole 
I am liberated
