Choking on Air

Breathe, breath, breathtaking..
Gasping for little drops..
Of addictive oxygen,..

Like a coke head..
Desperately ready for a fix...
Sharp, nice...inhale, exhale..
Through exhausts pipes of lungs,..

Double cylinders..
Of the heart's beat,..
Gasping, gasping, jet sucking winds into my lungs..
Flapping wings on arms race..

I am not, to drown in..
These dirty murky waters,..

To be caught on hooks held by the trawler

My silk, too fine..
For this here..
Hangman’s rope...

Shore line..
Awaits my savior parade..
I will be a fish through..
These waters..

  1. vivid imagery,
    love your word choices.
    well done.

  2. Great shot and lovely poem...!!

  3. some interesting things going on here, comparing the fishing line to hangman's rope is great. i also like how you call Oxygen addictive. i guess it's the ultimate addiction.


  4. I could feel the reactions of the fish ... great choice of words to evoke a response. Well done!

  5. A lot of desperation among the fishes. Interesting photo.

  6. Nice cadence & good word choice :)

  7. I am wondering if those are carp. Great picture of fish looking like they are breathing air through their mouths. Can fish do this? I am now wondering because I always thought they had to do it through their gills. Very new thought for me.

    Great poem, oxygen is it addictive or a necessity? What is the difference? Is there a difference?

    Thanks for joining in on this weeks Theme Thursday.

    God bless.
