i’m cold but not because it’s cold outside
i’m shivering but not to become warmer
i’m cold with a burning pain
my toes tingle with numbness
my sides cramped with a constant flex
my eyes just want to close, but darkness is so far away
it creeps like rising water and
before you know it you’re out of breath and
waiting at heavens gates.
i guess all you can do is open your eyes
feel that sting of saltwater, and move
for that one last kiss and smile to say goodbye for now my love.
