As I Lay (freeverse)

as i lay i am toiled

absolute merciless tension on me 

i cannot grasp

i am swallowed in its embrace

in its putrid intoxication 

in what i have made myself

it is all self created 

but in its suffering i find myself

in its suffocation i have lost myself 

smothered it to death and shown me myself 

as i lay it all unfolds in front of me 

as if it were a part of some design 

the only natural progression that could happen

there was no other way
