inhale
the air hot and thick
weighing heavy on your lungs
exhale
your breath the only stirring
in the calm and shapeless air
shiver
though it's eerily hot and still
sweat trickling down your back
cough
choking on the finality
and the truth that you can't escape
whisper
afraid of wasting your last breath
desperate to find some way out
suffocating
it's all over now, there's nothing left to do
then suddenly everything goes
black
