I Can't, I Can't Breathe


So much, I hate
my heart; it aches
of pain, and rage.
For death, I dream
I pray, I beg
and I, I scream
louder still, not heard
I am, ignored.
No one, just me
crying, unable to breathe
rescue me, I plead
for them; they look
away.
Trapped, I'm drowning
and everyone, they watch
choking and, they watch
as I'm, I'm dying.
‘Take another, a deep breathe'
and I scream, so loud
I can't breathe, underwater
save me oh please just save me
but, they just
they just, walk away
and I feel, their eyes burn
as they let, me drown.
I do, not want to die
I do, wish for peace
and sometimes, death is
peace which, is all I want
but I don't, want to
be, alone
I don't want, to be.
But why, why am I
left alone, I'm afraid
and no one, they don't care.
It must, have been
surely there is, no other
reason for, their treatment
something bad, that I
have, must've done
for them, to leave
me, as I
choke and plead
scream and bleed.
Rage and pain
are all, all that's left
as I have, I have died
and, they allowed it
no remorse, they show
nothing, I am
nothing, cold and
I am, blue.
Alone; I will
be, under water
choking, gasping
as they, they watch on.
