No matter the travails of daily life,
Life seems defined by the simplest act:
Breathing—from first breath to last.
The beating of your heart.
The moments when you are caught breathless
at the sight of beauty.
The soft sighs as you snuggle your lover.
The shock of your heart skipping a beat,
the pain in your chest when your love is harmed.
The tingle of electric shocks through the nervous system—
A transitory sensoria; vibrating in waves of energy
All is naught but waves of energy—
buzzing little particles, bouncing off each other.
