It swelled up my lungs
making it hard to breath
felt like I swallowed something
a large pill that wouldn't leave

Tears fell from my eyes
blurring my vision
Like one of those daggers
trying to make an incision

Looking through the window with the crack
I tried to get up, just to only fall back
Finally I smiled as my soul felt free
then closed my eyes and said a silent plea

I never would've guessed
that dying was going to hurt
but as fast as it came
I was at peace
