Life under darkness

Safe in the dark drowning in flesh
the beat of 2 hearts pumping your breath
I find myself drowning in all parts of life
In a pool as a child in my tears as a teen
In fear i find joy in a cloud in between
I grasp on the dew only to slip
Creating a ripple and finding my grip
I clinge to the darkness and
i pray for the light
but the struggle to breath is my will
Is my fight
I emerge at the surface
With wrinkling flesh
My body is weak my mind nearly mesh
I close my eyes and I take a deep breath
The first sence of calm
My last sence of fear
My heart starts to slow
Im Content with my fight
Now I'm at peace as I let my breath go...
