The air hangs thick 
Humidity and hesitation coat my lungs 
Weighing them down with each breath 
Heavy sighs do me no justice 
I feel the pressure on my chest 
Summer has just begun
Already I feel as if I’m suffocating 
You don’t seem to notice 
You crack open another cold one 
Enjoying the heat 
You don’t seem to mind my melting 
Soon I’ll be another puddle at your feet
