Today the clouds
Envelop me,
(a weightless veil

that clings to my lungs)
Whispering sweet lullabies
(intoxicating and sweet)

Today the air
Infests me,
(buzzing little bugs

creeping across my skin)
Conquering my body
(schizophrenic revival)

Today the air
Drowns me,
(a kind of dying

that brings you back to life)
Soaking me to the soul
(cleansing my withered existence)
