WHAT AM I?: Nephilim WHAT AM I?: Nephilim
A teen boy gets killed, but trades his soul for another chance. He changes. A girl notices the new boy with silver eyes.
Labored Breathing

Labored Breathing

A Poem by Cobblestone Traveler
"

The bumpiness and indecisiveness that can come with recovering from depression

"

Meditate, medicate

Inhalation, recreation

Falling through your spectral mass
Your name escapes with every gasp

Inner peace, summer breeze
Soothing soul, becoming whole

Slaughtered on a bed of thorns
Tear-stained sheets disgraced and torn

Swelling light, hearty might
Warming rays, healing waves

The last lingering hopes of life
Was lost within each iris of ice

Wow! Pretty profound and poetic, if I have anything to say about it! Sure, some of the rhymes may be halfs or cheats, but the musicality of the poem, the power amidst the words, and the seamless fluidity of the two functioning in tandem renders any minor flaw in this entire piece null!! Absolute fantastic! And best of all, there is so much room for interpretation here, that it just leaves the reader (at least this particular one) really intrigued at the pieces of the puzzle. Well done!

Recovery can be a roller coaster ride - ups, downs curves and bumps. Your poetic take on the subject profoundly highlights these moments - well penned! :-)
