Please see guidance notes to understand what i'm going on about here :-)

As I am first because this doesn't exist until it is posted, i will recommend a topic for myself (as random as I can) be and see what i can do from it.

Kevichella: Oxygen

When all others around you are gasping for their breaths,
And white flags wave for mercy by those not quite yet at their deaths,
And the world begins to darken as you explore your lung's depths,
Do you still think she is worth it or will you gasp in defeat like all the rest?

Whilst most retreat to safety, others crumble lifelessly down,
And those left have dwindled but keep their hands clamped on the crown,
You ignore the sound of choking even as you choke on the sound,
Can you still remember who you fight for as without breath you start to drown?

The agony is more horrible than you should ever have to face,
But like the rest you willingly gather here in this evil place,
Only the longest to hold their breath will win this dreadfull race,
And their loved one released from hell and this torture not a waste.

Your thoughts have stopped except of her as a million becomes two,
And though you see love in his eyes, you know what you have to do,
With every trembling last ounce of life, you pass a decision through,
A fist of yours enters his chest and he gasps the victory to you.

When all others around you were gasping for their breaths,
And white flags waved for mercy by those not quite yet at their deaths,
And the world began to darken as you explored your lung's depths,
You still thought she was worth it, and your love has passed the test.

The End
