Give me Breathing Space

Give me Breathing Space

Author Name :Raïs Neza Boneza

Give me breath

A dust of time

Without storm, without soft wind

In a sublime rest

Without life, without death


Give me breathing space

A moment of quietness

Without world, without heaven

Pausing in an abyss of emptiness

Without hatred, without love.


Give me breath

To sit alone

To swim in the nothingness of oblivion

Without delay, without night

Without heat, without cold.


Abandon me, drop me.

Distant of pity, distant of anger

Without paradise, without hell

Divorced of war, divorced of peace,

Without satisfaction, without starvation.


Give me breath

Without you, without myself

In a muck of ashes

Vision plunged in the blueness of sky

Vague image of hopelessness in a bottomless cavern


In the shadow of grace

Give me breathing space.  •
