Darkness is closing in

I'm suffocating

I can't see

The people dying around me

I barely make out

Their screaming fears

I can hear a little girl

She's terrified, and screaming


She repeats it again and again

I'm suffocating with sound

With pain

And the darkness all around me

I'm prying into the darkness

"Please take me away!

Make it all stop!

Take it all away!"

Then I wait to see if my prayers are answered

And I notice

That even though I still see darkness

There is no sound

No pain

I am floating

I'm finally floating away...

Away from life!
