My stomach turns
My eyes water
With no life left I whispered a call
I called for help
But knew that there was no one left
I said to myself
What a cold place to die
My life withered way as I gasped for more air
My head was being drained and a cold feeling came over me
It was the feeling I’ve always feared
I made a last whimper hoping someone would save me
But when no one came I finally lost all hope
It became more lifeless and dustier
I felt my eyes close
And wondered why I couldn’t open them
The air became tighter
And so did my lungs
My hands clutched my throat as I thought now is the time
My last tears fell
And I felt them slowly flowed down the side of my face
My body went limb
And that was the END
