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

Heal

The sickness is slowly picking up

Every now and then she stops

Catches her breath

And I see she’s aching but I can’t help her

She smiles

She tries

To be strong, to appear strong

But the sickness is slowly creeping

If I Were To Die Today

If my life were taken today,
I wonder what you would say?

Would you tell me you love me?
Or would you say you were just being friendly?

Would you cry and hold me until my last breath?
Will you be sad because of my death?

If I died today, is there anything you’d like to say?

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

Into

into the deep I saw the light

the one that shines brighter than moonshine

towards the tunnel was a road

enveloped with misery and uncertainty

yet into the darkness I saw hope

where all else around me was none

towards salvation or whatever it held

I went and held my breath

 

into the unknown I venture

not knowing what lies beneath or ahead

I crossed the bridge of sorrow

and into the abyss I melted

still I came out unscathed

I held it all in, ’til my last breath I’ve breathed

and I see past it all

the thing that others don’t
