Exhale

When he walks through the door I exhale.
I exhale the breath I didn't even know I was holding.
My body relaxes.
I pause.
I stop.

  1. I love this, especially the line:
    'I exhale the breath I didn't even know I was holding'. Wonderful stuff.

  3. Best time of the day (after taking a shower ;)

    I wonder if he'll do the same when it's his turn?

  5. Beautiful! You've captured it perfectly. Though I'll admit...moments later I usually whip myself back up into a frenzy of hopes that I'll get to all the things I want to do now.
