pushing against the current,
its only the
whispering willow
that lays wittness

you struggle,
the constant strain
on your back
unyielding

the pain of drowning
the pain of living

slowly, the panic builds,
as your
weak lungs
contract

d*** the cigars,
but it's too late

the fire's ebbing,
as is your mind

you drift to the very bottom.

silent
peaceful
gone.
