Dissolving Transience


United States

Tossed out of the ocean
I’m gasping
God take me back
This agony is everlasting g
Deaths cold fingertips
Tantalize and twist
My hopeless windpipes and become aroused by impetuous changing color seizing my chilled pale skin
I beg the Lord, I beg One Breath
I beg your pardon, I beg you Death
This feeling of evanescence, the transience of this fleeting life
Oh the strife we have endured to finally conclude our existence
With the final inevitable battle
The killer of all
We are fish thrown out of the sea
Tortured by the roaring ocean that once gave us breath
