Can'T Breathe

I can’t breathe
Something’s in my throat
Darkness closing ‘round me...
Losing feeling in my limbs
Not quite thinking clearly
I can’t breathe
I can’t see
Pounding in my ears
Making my head ache
Making my chest burn
Making my fingers tingle
Making my heart slow
I can’t breathe
Panic! Panic!
I can’t breathe!
I can’t scream!
No one can hear
The cries in my head
And I’m losing my mind
One day at a time
Trembling with weakness
I can’t breathe
So I die.

Same here! This is so intense that the reader does seem to 'be there' with you. Nice job. Sincerely, Mary
I enjoyed it-found myself holding my breath!
