Breathing While Being Cold and Soaking Wet


Breathing while being cold and soaking wet

The zen of an old man with no time left

You are fighting, desiring death and yet

 

Purposes stem from needing an outlet

When creation fails it will lead to death

Breathing while being cold and soaking wet

 

Thoughts turn to hunger and getting shot at

Hallucinations have committed theft

You are fighting, desiring death and yet

 

You know that you are not worthy of it

Recalling damage done under your chest

Breathing while being cold and soaking wet

 

This is as bad as it’s going to get

The last sand trickles from your hands outstretched

You are fighting, desiring death and yet

 

While waiting for the train brooding you met

A lovely shade and shared a cigarette

Breathing while being cold and soaking wet

You are fighting, desiring death and yet

  1. For some reason, I’m seeing ghettos in WWII Europe. Might be because I just came from a history class.
