I am drowing in this air

I am drowning in this air.

It clogs the throat.

Breathe deeply and you can feel

Ounces of regret.

Clung to iron walls,

I climb these invisible tests

To find visible deaths.

A spiked reality above me.

Brings your eyes

For you won’t want to miss.

I’ll show happiness beyond.

Breathe me, my poisoned gift.

You were beautiful once.

Barely legal, perfect once.

A warm addiction once.

Slow and painless once.

Once was enough once.

Now faded.
