~ Poetry by me ~

Expiration

The noose tightens
Bronchia constrict
Allergy, itching all over
Part of me refusing
a part of this world

I hang on, barely
In this tree of my body
Tied by a thread
Need excruciates - Air!
Never noticed
Save for its absence
Skin now changing to
Helaīs hue

Grasping my spear, the needle
I stab myself through
Epinephrine rushing
Agony's essence
Ecstasy's extract
Heart beats wildly
Chest bursting, on fire
My mind goes beyond -

- I gasp,
breathe,
out, and in,
My fetters fall

A stream of air
Is my scream of
LIFE
