Please Take Some Deep-breaths

I sit, aging
Brain wars waging

You look good for your age
I don’t hear it anymore
Eyes brim to the dim
Subtle glances toward the door
The panic
Creates static
Pulsing lines
Throbbing veins
I breathe, heavily
Pain will be the death of me

You can break free from the cage
I don’t fear it anymore
Lips shake from the break
Swiftly moving, I soar
Fly higher and higher
Until I am no more
