Must try

Breathing in, no breath is felt 
Blackness engulfed again I wept
Struggle forth the effort unwanted
I cry, I cry, I cry 
Must die, must die, must die

Waves crash against body, pain
Rock Rain forcing head to bow
Smashing hard against the ground
I cry, I cry, I cry 
Must die, must die, must die

But love too profound for those around
Reaching up for the clouds
Try to touch the condensation
Can’t die, can’t die, can’t die
Won’t cry, won’t cry, won’t cry

In love for him for her for them
Selfish thinking set asunder
Open curtains let in light
Shall try, shall try, shall try
Won’t die, won’t die, won’t die

    I absolutely love this. The loss of strength then gain once more makes it fascinating and lovely to me. It truly is phenomenal how the feelings that coursed through my body when I read this changed with each line. You did a marvelous job.
