The Hollow Chest: Beggar of Air – Poem

Not something I’ve personally had, thankfully, but some do have illnesses that cause them to have such a change of emotion that it throws them off-balance every time. Hoping it’s correct in its detail. What do you think of it?

The Hollow Chest: Beggar of Air

While other’s seem to rise and fall
Gently taking it in and out,
My own’s either painfully full
Or will be worryingly not.

Bristling and bursting energy
Is untamed and focus futile;
Spent in a step and I’m empty,
Barely able to make up smiles.
