"Stop existing, and start living," - Michael Jackson

There's a mumble in his words.
Cheeks that once held laughter,
now only hold sag and wrinkles.
He sits in his blue chair, waiting.
Nervousness overcomes,
knowing what's occurring.
Two seconds have passed.

Fingers twitch uncontrollably.
Head nodding.
Pain and regret fill his thoughts,
with his heart carried in his mouth.
Four seconds have passed.

Eyes struggling to remain open.
Breath is close to distant.
Heartbeat relaxes.
Mind empty.
Six seconds have passed.

The author's comments:
This is a very emotionally piece for me, because it's about my grandpa, who is always fighting for his life. He sits in his favorite blue chair everyday and it scares me that one day he will die in it-so I wrote a dramatization of my fears.
