Blood, Lungs and Alcohol
Addiction, Hell and Help
How much more
Can Aidan take
Before he decides to die?

Aidan is the main character of something I am currently writing with an alcohol/drug addiction. I've written it here as a poem :)

My lungs are breaking,
but the hospital thinks I'm faking.

I'm sick at the moment, my througt is killing me.

I had no clue
that standing in the room
screaming at the top of my lungs
would cause
no one to even acknowledge
my existence

If every song I wrote to you
would take your breath away
Then why am I suffocating?

I'm not good at being alone.
It makes lungs feel
shaky,
ribcage achy.
next breath.
exhale.

Don't choke me when you know I'm not well.

Acquainted with this feeling.
It feels like your not
breathing,
I can't help but hear
screaming,
Suddenly I start
heaving.

When everyone around you is breathing smoke it is hard to keep your oxygen for yourself...and soon you are breathing their smoke while they are gasping for what little air you have left.

Strings thread through my eyelids
my tears are burning
       I've lost my breath,
       and can barely see
My world has gone dizzy,
Oh God, Is this just me?
       My fingertips shaken
       in search for my inhaler
What happened to sanity?
It left in his palm
        This is what happens
        when their hate rips through my lungs

I have trouble at high altitudes
and I can't run more than a few steps without tiring
I'm a dancer but I gasp for air after
every performance
and my mouth tastes of pennies
I will never climb Mt. Everest
or smoke a single cigarette
I will not live in Beijing or own a cat
or be a deep sea diver
the best thing
they will ever do for me
is whisper your name

I try to breathe.
Which is a hard task for me.
My life is fading fast.

These new lungs I was given.
Make me feel unforgiven.
My breath will never last.

Life is hard to live.
When all I do is give.
And I receive nothing in return.

The new lungs are fading.
My wrists are blading.
My whole world is ready to burn.

I can't escape this Hell.
I've been deemed "mentally unwell."
I'm ready to be down for the count.

So I just crawl in bed.
And cover my head.
My new lungs are wearing out.

New Lungs
