Suffocate

breathe, breathe, breathe

i keep this on repeat in my head

deep breaths, deep breaths

but i feel my breaths coming up short

as if they don’t reach my lungs

i feel there’s not enough air

i lack the oxygen I need to breathe

where is the air?

my nostrils aren’t clogged and i even

try to suck the air from my mouth

but there is still not much air

i keep gasping

where is the air?

where is the air?

breathe….breathe….breathe

Hold Your Breath

in that moment that your fighting with all your might

mustering all your strength and giving it all you’ve got

in that moment, that split second

thoughts flood your mind ; everything is rushing through your veins

faster than the speed of sound

your surroundings becomes a blur

and in that moment you’re about to lose control

but your blood is pumping, heart is raising

adrenaline is over the top

and in the last moments you hold your breath and hold your head high

you’ve won! and it was worth the fight, the struggle

the scars are worth it

for you’ve won the battle
