Less Than a Breath
'He is! He's gonna make my breath a bit less!' she hissed in an earnest & soft voice a gasp of the last of her fight
but the delicate fingers of sooty fog still slunk into the corner of her puffy wet eyes
Siloutte motionless. terrified.
shaky unsure shivering breaths
Slim slippery fingertips of sooty smog
pinching itself, reaching
twisting itself, tightening
Bowtied, knotted, woven, entangled
Narrowing, smothering, snuffing, stuffed closed
Deftly, Dexteritiously, precisely entwined
Less than Breath now
Empty. Less than life. Lifeless.
