Air

It rushes over my head and covers me
I struggle to catch a breath
Find it hard to move, limbs stiffening
My body failing me, paralyzed into inaction
A faint hint of will tries to lift my head
Tries to stoke the fire within me
But it’s dampened, almost gone out
Feint voices penetrate, trying to rescue me
Bring me back from these dark depths
My eyes lift upwards with hope of energy
But the light is fading the further I sink from the surface
Overwhelmed and drowning in life
