I Can’t Breathe

I’m desperate for air

 

Clawing at my throat

And still I get none

Now fear makes me choke

Time passes quickly

 

But each second is too long

Reaching and fighting

Exhausted, he’s too strong

And I give up the resistance

The phantom winning the struggle

He empties me of oxygen, and

Enjoys watching my body crumble
