Can hear the rush of water,
change in the tempo of sound
as I go down and pop up.
They say, sound travels faster in water
it sounds very different though,
I am drowning I know for sure..
I drink some water,
my sinuses hurt,
have a stinging pain in my head,
and am getting choked.
The rush to stay afloat,
kicking my legs furiously,
I know I am drowning for sure..
The water is above my head now,
I can’t see the blue of the sky,
I don’t hear the screams any more,
I seem to be fading away,
I don’t mind it at all
I know I have drowned for sure…
