    -------------------------------------------


    Mouth gaping, but soundless.
    Eyes wide, tears cascading.
    Gasping for air, suffocating.
    Strangled, choking, breathless.
    Struggling, fighting, resisting.
    Heart pounding, spirit failing.
    Forsaking hope, surrend'ring.
    Motion ceases, finished.
    Released, hovered over.
    Left for dead, lights turned out.
    Eyes flutter open, dry.
    Inhaling precious air.
    Alive.

      great poem. it was kind of short, but i think that gave the lines that were there emphasis, and added to the sense that it happened quickly. very vivid descriptions. It would suck to die by suffocation, and you do a very good job of creating that sense, even though the person in the poem survives

      So that's what it feels like to be near death. Some very emotional feelings here, and a place that I hope never to find myself in...but who knows. It's gotta happen sometimes.
    Neat ending though where you discover that you're still alive.

      it escapes me what type of poem this is actully called. your are right something does seem to be missing. perhapes it is time. or emotion of the death. how fast the death happened. or the reverse effect of someone coming back to life. i am not sure. even my sugestions could overly complicat the poem and completly change the format. hmm. i think the actions are explained well though.

      SO, talking to me must be a near-death-experience. i suck.. . O well. lol. very nice images. i got light headed about half-way through. i liked the picture you painted, not so much for what it was just in the terrific way it was presented. good job, hun. lata~p.j.

      The peice sounds slighly closter phobic. It is vivid and puts a person right there.

    But its my personal oppinion that if you emphasize more on the closterphobia of the peice you might find it to be a gripping peice that will captivated your audience.

    Example:

    Mouth gaping, (choking for remnats of stifled air) but soundless.

    Or something along those lines. I do like the peice and it's only your dissatifaction that will only make it better.
