I canít breath

Iím laughing and running I canít breath  
Iím in conversation I canít breath
Your making love to me I canít breath †
Iím on the bus I canít breath †
A tiny ball rolls down my air way †
Then stops on purpose †
I canít swallow †
I need help but I canít holla †
Then a little bit air comes in †
I want to swallow it all but †
Im gasping too fast, †
how long oh God will it last †
Help me I canít breath (tears) †
Donít want no one to see me †
spit up or choking †
I rather stay alone Iím so broken (tears)  
No one to rub my back to ez the straining †
Or dry my tears cause itís been raining †
I canít breath, Some walk right by †
Others Just look and try to feel sad †
If she can scream it canít hurt so bad †
Unless you feel it, like really know †
Hold your throat and nose and donít let go  
please donít assume Iím ok †
I couldnít breath last night †
but Iím still alive today. †
