Treading water in the dead of night
In the strongest current
In the middle of the ocean
Without help in every direction
Kicking furiously and paddling so hard
My head keeps going under
Then back to the surface then down
Frigid and exhausted, alone and drowning
I’m kicking my feet, I don’t want to die
Feel monsters down below
Wanting to drag me under
The tears heat offset the icy cold
Panicking and losing hope
Losing strength and motivation
Kicking my feet so hard now
My arms and shoulders are numb
Please, I don’t want to die
Swells crash overhead pummeling hard
I am lost and I am cold
I am going to die, I can’t hold on
I can’t move my feet, I can’t feel my arms
Water fills my lungs.
