Hold your breath 
A silent presence 
Tapping at your sick mind
Throbbing eyes
And wretched coughs
Reality no longer
All you can hear
Is the voice that calls your name
At the edge of sleep
Jolting awake
Heart bashing in your ears
Hold your breath
Till your lungs bleed
Reaching for your throat
Your freezing fate envelops you
Leaving you pale and sick
Eyes rolling about
Hold your breath
With wounds gushing
Blood spilling about the floor
In patterns of hate and sorrow
Spelling out life
Which is just a big joke
Hold your breath 
Till the soul departs
From its shelter
To find paradise 
Or just another blank sheet
