Suffocation

Struggling to breathe

Trying to breathe but
larynx tight
Throat constricting
in the fight
Chest heavy with
the weight of the world
As pressure mounts
and events unfurl

Like a plastic bag
over the head
Restricting life and
even breath
Fighting for freedom
from the stresses of life
To no longer fear
and no longer hide
