Do you ever wonder where you spent breath goes
not conveying a kind sound or thought
just caught in the wind as the willows gather
the breath of others like you

When you've used it up and cast it out
seemingly without purpose or direction
do you feel guilty for the neglect or the pain
you may have caused with your heavy breathing

I cannot feel for this, because I am alone
remembering how you used to whisper to me
telling me of the love you felt which was as empty
as your wasted breath


 A real man
kisses his children goodnight

I really like this.
Interesting thought.

Excellent poem about something not considered too often, I would presume   Good writers can come come up with ideas others don't think of....you have done so admirably.

Your words speak of a bitter breath...and aptly so. Good writing, my friend.
