Stress Kills

Posted by [email protected] on October 15, 2011 at 1:10 PM

 I WAIT...,

 

EAGERLY ANTICIPATING MY FATE AND

 

WHAT IS TO BECOME OF ME.

 

WALLS AROUND ME CLOSING IN,

 

I'D SCREAM IF NOT FOR THE LACK OF

 

AIR;

 

THINNER IT CONTINUES TO GET.

 

THE PAIN IS MORE THAN I CAN BARE;

 

I'M CAUGHT UP IN LIFE'S UNFORGIVING

 

SNARE, AND THERE'S NO WAY OUT.

 

HELP ME PLEASE..., SOMEBODY...,

 

ANYBODY.

 

LIFE'S GRIP IS STRANGLING;

 

DAYS OF YESTER YEARS NOW A BLUR.

 

IF ONLY YOU KNEW ME, YOU'D CONCUR.

 

I'M FADING

 

GOOD LUCK? YA, RIGHT..., MY LIFE IT'S

 

EVADING.

 

HEAD SPINNING,

 

MY MIND UNABLE TO FOCUS;

 

LOVE,

 

PEACE,

 

CONTENTMENT,

 

HAPPILY EVER AFTER,

 

THEY ALL SEEM BOGUS.

 

STILL I WAIT...,

 

NO LONGER ABLE TO FIGHT THE GOOD

 

FIGHT;

 

MY STRENGTH IS GONE,

 

MY BODY WEAK FROM LIFE'S JOURNEY,

 

FALLING QUICK!

 

I NEED AIR!

 

EYES WIDE AS I LOOK FOR A WAY OUT,

 

GASPING..., GASPING...,

 

TIME STANDS STILL,

 

GONE,

 

FOR IT WAITS FOR NO ONE.

 

AS I THINK BACK I WONDER,

 

COULD THIS BATTLE EVER HAVE BEEN

 

WON?

 

I TAKE MY LAST BREATHE...,

 

IT IS DONE......

 

THEN I WAKE,

 

SITTING UPRIGHT, GASPING FOR AIR!

 

WOW, IT WAS JUST A DREAM

 

THOUGH REAL IT DID SEEM.

 

TO SOME EXTENT, MAYBE IT WAS.

 

MAYBE A WARNING OF SOME TYPE?

 

THEN IT HIT ME...,

 

AFTER EXAMINING MY LIFE,

 

I'VE COME  TO THIS CONCLUSION,

 

..., "STRESS KILLS!"
