Have you ever tried breathing under water?
You are gasping for breath, and as you do, water fills your lungs.
It hurts to breathe cause you are under water.
Yet you exhale!

It is like sitting at a casino and watching you card been dealt,
Each time you lose,
A huge chunk is taken from your house of cards.
The world so void, that emptiness is an understatement.
