State of dazed and confusion 
Beating heavily upon my chest
Inhaling, exhaling I welcome 
The unprecedented weight of despair
Tighten around my lungs
As my esophagus becomes
 Enlarged with mucus and last nights meal
Repeatedly I flex my muscles
 To hold the retched stench within
Afraid of what will become
 Of me if it leaves me
I now am 
The dependent in this
