Dec 2015
I look up for the comfort of the air to wrap its self around me
The brisk air kisses my cheeks and turns them red
This is something I’ll never lose

I stare into the bright light of the flame and let its dance fulfill me
The warmth it emits fuels the hope in my eyes
This is something I won’t forget

I suffocate under the water but it slowly releases me
The coolness of my choking turns my lips blue
This is something I’ll hold onto

I breathe in the dust as I walk out at dusk looking for a new day
The grit leads to my coughing on every breath
This is something that won’t last
