Burden of life

I inhale softly,

Air fills my lungs,

A small tickle,

Disrupts my gentle breath,

I cough and sputter,

The menacing feeling of death.

 

Sounds so sweet,

purred from a sub,

gentle on the ears,

but then a pitch too high,

strikes me in my place,

I feel my hearing slowly die.

 

I stare at magic pictures,

Flowing on a screen,

dancing mystic figures,

Cloud my normal view,

Silhouettes dance to and fro,

Vision leaves my crew.

 

I walk across a park,

Smile on my face,

That quickly turns sour,

Twisting pains from my breast

I seize and fall over

My heart still trying its best

 

Soft white,

Simple colors,

Fill my days of peace,

As I lie there patiently,

Connected to a machine,

My kidneys both failed me.

 

Colorful pills,

Small gulps of water,

Sooth my growing pain,

I lie twisting in turmoil,

Waiting for the sweet release,

The day I become soil.

 

I inhale softly,

Rough air flows in,

Stuck in a tomb,

No escape from me,

Twas my final breath,

I am finally free.
