Drowning


Fire courses through my lungs
Pressure behind my eyes
In my chest
Gasping
Swallowing water
Inhaling
I can't hold on much longer
So this is what it feels like to drown.

Lightheaded
Will this be my last thought?
I wish I had done more in my life.
I wish I had something more to say
Something better to stand up for
My life was so short

I can't breathe in this air
Light is so far away
God, breathe into my lungs
Don't take me yet
Stop the screaming
Of my air-starved body
I can't breathe without you

I think I'm crying

I am drowning
Crushing
Darkness
And I don't think it will ever end
