Suffocate Me Slowly

Smoke fills the car As you gasp for one last breath. Unable to give your lungs That much needed fresh air. You slowly fade into the blackness. As much as you wanted this, your body fights on. Balancing on life's tightrope, you teeter Between consciousness and the void of nothingness. What will mom think? Will she blame herself for not seeing the signs? Those brief moments of situational-awareness Are starting to get further and further apart. Maybe breaking the key off in the ignition, wasn't so smart.
