    Passages
    once filled with
    exhilirating oxygen
    were now stressed
    beyond belief

    Contaminated
    with dust--
    lined with stale
    unclean
    particle-filled air

    Insanity is
    choking me
    sucking sustenance
    out
    leaving me empty
    the atomsphere
    turns my
    brown cast
    to blue

    Red arteries
    beating pink
    lungs until they
    pass out
    inhaling
    so hard
    I create
    puncture wounds
    to decorate
    internal organs

    Imbalanced and
    Induced
    ...the
    air way's
    metronome
    monitors the
    breathing pattern
    that can not
    be heard
    above a sigh
    and faint is the
    voice that
    shrills -- asking
    for your help

    Crying - dying - trying
    hard not to forget
    to breathe~
    in so much pain
    my memory escapes me
    Each exhalation
    is a struggle
    my soul fails
    to release
    the hurt
    that continues
    to grow
    within

    My mind
    is wearing and
    Amber Suns
    well deep with
    blinding liquid
    that burns
    dripping onto
    my nostrils

    Life's energy
    force is
    being slowly
    drained
    from this
    tired
    and
    broken
    body
