Audio poem: Breathe

Hi you guys ๐Ÿ˜Š

I hope you all are enjoying summer and like me have gone on vacation. I tried to finish some things for the blog before the vacation, and I have made a couple of more poems, and also tried to make some of them into audio poems. First one that is finished is Breathe. In this poem danger is definitely closer than you would like for it to be, I hope you will have a listen. Let me know what you think, and if you like it, I will make more ๐Ÿ˜Š

Breathe – audio poem by Hilde T. Juvodden


Donโ€™t forget

To breathe

She said

I tried

I really did

But the air

Really couldnโ€™t

reach me



She would whisper

Just breathe

For another minute

For another second

Until we get out

Have faith

She would mumble

I donโ€™t know

If it was meant for me

Or for herself


Just one

more breathe

I need you

To do that

For me

I could barely hear her

Couldnโ€™t see her

But I did breathe

Had to do it

Couldnโ€™t let her down


The poem is a part of a series of poems where; There is no time for crying was the first one, which you can read here: There is no time for crying (post), and listen to here: There is no time for crying (audio poem)

It has been a lot more fun to make the audio poems than I thought it would be, I guess the story of the poems become more alive to me as well when I get to put different sound effects to them. I thought it would be fun to make a post later when I can make different versions of the same poem just with different sound effects, it can definitely change the whole mood of the poem.

Have a great summer! ๐Ÿ˜Š
