Suffocated Dreams

By Aarron Mondello

The heart falls slowly into despair
Floundering in the tar
Lungs burning through the struggle for breath
Sinking inexorably down
A light flashes brilliant behind fading eyes
As darkness takes it hold
Ghosts of the past walk by in last moments
Of life here upon this earth
Strangled by expectations placed on us by us
Tarred in ever black lies
Until backs are turned forever from dreams
And we join the ranks of the robots
