Verses Undone: From Life To Death

My bones tremble
My heart beats faster
I cannot breathe
I feel my temperature rise

A crime of fate
The breath of life
Like hands around my neck
There’s nothing I can do

Collapse to the floor
Everything you thought you knew
Life is slipping away
You are no more

My heart falls to pieces
I’m out of breath
My eyes fill with water
The struggle is over

Dust to dust
Ashes to ashes
From life to death
I will not forget
