WordPress – #Daily Prompt – Grasp

Looking in from the confused but not so distant outside

It must have seemed I was grasping from the riptide

Flailing around while drowning on apparent dry land

That’s what a deep lack of oxygen will command

One minute I had seemed on top of my form

Eight days into ICU and I woke up to a new norm

Who knew that toxic exposure would one day awake

Into a seeming and startling total biological break

Oxygen is carried on red blood cells to keep you going

When it won’t adhere that gets more than annoying

I would cough so hard that I would hit my vagal nerve

It was a catastrophe, but, from this life I could not swerve

Two beautiful faces in mind kept me alive; I could not die

I somehow made it through into remission; glory to God is my reply
