Repeated vowels are stuttered stalling stuck
My lungs dyingly squeeze weakness into the atmosphere
Tension in my muscles
Knots in my brain
Veins of blue holding shaken cells rush to comfort, pooling to my feet
Beatings slow, my loving muscle twists, shrinks, cries in pain
Apologies for my time being, a change too difficult to alter
A tear to cool a smile to fool
