Day 6) Write a poem.

I breathe and so does she.

Her life is wrapped up in mine.

Lending my blood, oxygen, and genomes,

our sustenance sources from the same field of cells.


She is a soul inhabiting a body,

inhabiting my body which also houses a soul.

We are a mystery to each other,

this tiny passenger and I.

A mystery, only, until she shouts with a breath of life.

At which point her breath will surely take away mine.
