I feel like I’m suffocating

Gasping for air

Drowning in my own despair

Stuck in the thick of dryness


The face in the mirror

Turning bluer and bluer

Feeling like time is running out

The walls are closing in around me


One hand on my throat

One hand outstretched

Calling for help

Hope that never comes


I feel myself slipping

Further into a dark abyss

Fading from this time

Struggling to stay put


Scratching at my throat

Hoping to clear my airway

To no avail

My eyes are growing heavy


Feel my spirit slipping away

Darkness is upon me

The light is growing dimmer

It seems like a dream


Thickness too surreal

Still all I know

I feel like I’m suffocating

Grasping for the air of life
