Survive

.

Choking on food

I couldn’t breathe

No one at home

And I was alone

Gasping with tears on my face

Was it the final moment

I was going to face

A cough dislodged the bite

Another second to exhale

And I survived to tell the tale

Will I Survive?


Smooth was the tongue with which she talked

I was taken by it before I knew

Wish I had known to save myself

From the misery that would follow through

The anguish I feel is like daggers drawn

Piercing me in several spots

With my heart ripped into pieces, blood drips unseen

The pain manifold, I never sought

Broken down and depressed is how I feel

Wasted love, wasted years have gone down the drain

Despair and exhaustion runs through my veins

Will I survive, will I remain?

(Sheen-June2016)

This poem I have penned is in lieu of my son, and what he is going through at present.
