Treasure Island

Piper Banks


Puppet


Suffocation
Strain on my throat
On my chest
In my eyes
Blood pumps through my veins
Warm and fast
I can't breathe
My mouth searches for air
An opening waiting to be filled
Crick in my neck
Tension along my jaw
Dust fills my lungs and settles amongst my bones
I lay in this labyrinth of my mind
The doors to life have closed
My toes curl
Anguish
I cannot be still
The pain takes over my body
Every muscle in me is no longer under my control
I am a puppet
My limbs are controlled by the strings of fate
Splinters cut through my skin
My heart is rotted wood
I cannot move
Suffocation

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
