Feb 7
I woke up in the dead of night
My eyes darted around the darkness that suffocated me
I cried out for help, a vain reminiscence from the wisps
Of dark adrenaline that hung in the air around me
Making it too thick to breathe in
I coughed pleas for help out of my lungs
An exhale of soot from the place Iā€™d been
Then, I blinked
I felt the world around me.
Took a breath of clean air
The smoke dissipated
Whispers faded
And the cinders slipped through my hands
Never to be held again
