Waiting for Deliverance

Voices in the distance
Become whispers
Laughter fades
Into whimpers
As I lay dying

My scream is silent
Yet I scream
My dream is silent
Yet I dream
As I lay dying

My lungs swell
With mechanical breath
Waiting for deliverance
Longing for death
As I lay dying

Silhouettes around me hover
Like a vision; like a dream
Sorrow in their bloodshot eyes
I utter a groan; a scream
As I lay dying

My voice dies unheard
As the breathing machine
Mechanically breathes life
Into my still chest
As I lay dying

As I give up my dying breath

A machine forces it back into my chest

My lungs are burning as the air

Is forced back and forth

Forcing me to breathe

Into suffocation


As my heart gives his last quiver

An electric shock forces it to beat

Into a mechanical rhythm

Unnatural life not worth living


A prisoner in endless pain

Why do you imprison me?

Mortal, it is not for you to decide
Once my creator has called me
My soul longs to be free


You keep it entrapped

Inside my dead body

Why do you keep me?

Mechanically breathing

I want to soar high

Hasten to unite with God


Mortal, let go 

Death is my Deliverance

Interesting and deeply heartfelt piece. I had an aunt, who suffered from polio and she lay in an iron lung, deliverence removes the pain....

Be always safe,
