I was never able to breathe easy,
the tension in my lungs coiling up and squeezing
tightly, never missing a chance to cut the
sweet air off with a sickening pressure.

And when I'm running, my arms are pinned
like puppets to my sides, mechanically moving
and not ever reaching too far out because
I live in fear of burning out too quickly.

When you're inhaling cigarette smoke and
your lungs do not function as lungs, but
rather a cage, that only functions to stop
you from breathing easy,

You do everything you can to not burn out.
Because we are not stars, whose shining
moment is exploding in a great big ball
of light and gas, tossing ourselves across

Space and time. No, we are the people who
have to unpin our arms, and open the rusted-
shut doors of our lungs in hopes to go faster,
to burn brighter in the moment.

I have never felt so alive as I do when
the air is ripped from my feeble chest and
wind caresses my hair, drawing forth laughter
that I didn't know I was able to make.

Because life is so much different when your
lungs do not act as lungs, but rather a large
pressure in your chest, with a battle cry that
takes the shape of a whisper, wheezing out,

That Inhaler Sure Looks Nice

Oi, I'm Peyton and well, I'm just pretty much this kid that's trying to figure out their place in the world. I like a lot of things and won't bore you with that, but if you wanna know just ask.

I'm not a people-pleaser, and I will not change that for anyone.

Welcome, newcomers.
