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

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
