I look around in this strange world
Climating into my preasance are strange creatures that have never been seen before
Long silky tails like a fish's
but as my eyes look up i see a person
Hair moving with the waves
Ancient eyes that have seen many things of the sea
soft but solemn faces staring at my gear
they know i can't breathe down in this beautiful place
As i stare
im losing oxygen
But i dont care
As i take in my last few breaths they exchange glances
i can tell what their thinking
"she's going to die."
i cant believe i gave my life in the air for this place
but i can never go up there again
for i have sold my soul to the underwater
