Sometimes I can't breathe

Sometimes I can’t breathe

The fault in my lungs becomes apparent as I struggle for a single intake of breath

But in truth it is not my lungs that have failed me
I was made a faulty machine                                                     
 always a little off center
 I am faulty
but I do not say that I am broken 
I have met those who have been broken 

they have cracks in their skin 

their eyes are not lifeless, but sad 
                        I am faulty

my eyes are happy, but in an empty way

Faulty is not better than broken, it’s simply 
less visible
