For Today, I Breathe Again


      3:35 AM 
   I've packed up all I can fit 
   To take my home elsewhere 
   This house gives me nightmares 
   But I need to rest up 
   For the trip of a lifetime

For Today, I Breathe Again is a poem and companion game for the Game Boy handheld console.

First published as part of the Meditations Project on January 30th, 2019, this work is a contemplation of past fears, future hopes, and the half-lit hours where they begin to overlap.

The poem can be found in the game's files, or can be downloaded separately.

(CONTENT WARNING: Both the poem and game contain artistic representations of domestic abuse.)

These games are selected works from the Computer Technology for Art Education course at Virginia Commonwealth University. Students design and develop pixel-based 2D games as teams. They build these games around a common theme of "pushing buttons," in which they find a shared frustration amongst themselves and use their games a form to express it, whether it be procrastination, parking tickets, or problems with anxiety.
