Just Inches…

Constricted airways
Panic rush in waves
Asphyxiating gasps
Air gulps hit impasse
Panic digs deeper alas
Inhalations cannot pass

Eyes popping out
Hands flail about
Heartbeats strikeout
Nightmarish reality
Life signs losing vitality
Body thrashing twitchy

Death nano seconds away
Ironically life is sweet today
YOU know best is what I pray
Magically returning from dead
Oxygen reviving heart and head
Death makes a u-turn as it fled

Just inches separate death and birth
The journey is not a bag full of mirth
We can try our best for what its worth
Just inches…
            Just seconds..
                     Just moments.
All seemed like eons!!
