I Lie For No Reason

The Reason I leave
is not shortness of breath,
but rather I cannot breathe.
And if I cannot breathe,
how then shall I live.?
And if I shall not live,
then these words are empty
and meaningless
as my own heart.
Rather my own heart
and not shortness of breath,
is truly my loss of life
and cannot breathe.
Yet still,
poetically I deceive.
Rather my only reason,
is no reason.
And thats the reason I leave
