To slip away

a cold pool of pain

I try in vain

to not give in

but I can’t swim

my head goes under

heart beats like thunder

lungs stretch and retch for air

its too late for prayer

or to believe

someone like me

can survive?

stay alive?

thrive?

please,

please release me

to slip away quietly
