My last breath

The cold wind freezes my bones,
My thoughts soar into a little hole,
They slowly fall, losing their breath,
What had happened? No one can guess.

My life has been such a mess,
I can feel my body crying for a bless.
For what reason would I want to stay,
All I've been doing is pushing you away.

I'm having my last breath,
Never again; that's what they say,
My thoughts; they all fly away,
Dreams I will never dream again.

My mind flies aside the sidewalk,
I can sense the fear in my heart,
But I know this is just the start
Of a new story; a new clock.

Seconds won't pass as they do,
I thought the story would be me and you.
Alone I walk; flying through the day,
This was meant to be my way.

I'm having my last breath,
Never again; that's what they say,
My thoughts; they all fly away,
Dreams I will never dream again.

I walk the street; it starts to rain,
As if the clouds knew I wanted to cry
I can't go through this pain,
It's my turn to die.

Thank you for being my friend,
I can't tell you; I'm so afraid.
But I know one thing for sure,
This is the way, this is my cure.

Shir Hanochi Claim this poet

"life isn't measured by the numbers of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away". With my poetry, I want to make more of those breathtaking moments, to put everything I feel into words and let everyone else enjoy it as well as learning from it.English is not my first language, therefore I'd like to hear any grammar or spelling mistakes. Thank you all for understanding, and enjoy reading. :) more…
