When someone is drowning it’s instinct to not breathe but the pressure builds in your head and it feels like it’s going to explode until you finally give in and inhale the water and it stops hurting, it’s almost peaceful. When I was drowning and struggling for air, that’s when I finally let go, I could breathe again. Moments, my life was a series of moments. Letting them go, letting go of all those moments gathering to the very last one, everything stopped hurting, all the pain, heartache, all the struggling was gone. Memories passed by as I watched them disappear into the surrounding water as I was being engulfed into the cold darkness, I could feel my life slipping between my hands like sand.
