It’s getting hard to breath again.
I can feel it.
The shallow breaths that aren’t enough.
Light headedness blackening my eyesight.
Forced to pause, and wonder.
Will I ever breath easy?
To give up when it’s too strenuous.
Fold into one’s self.
Become the comforting nothingness.
To be numb inside, and out.
Instead I decide to fight.
Takes so much effort.
I feel the fire within starting to burst through my skin.
The pain arrives, and it’s searing through my defeat.
All I have left is to prosper.
There’s no other way.
Unless I want to return to the nothing.
For just a moment I feel invincible.
Like carbon formed into a diamond.
I dazzle, and awe.
Until the next descent into the abyss.
It’s a vicious circle.
