Drowning

The flood gates have opened.
I am drowning in a sea of quandary.
I am grounded beneath the surface.

I am being dragged by the aggressive current.
I am fighting against it with everything I have, even though I know I will never win.
It pulls me to a place far from where I have begun, I place I thought I would never be.

Oh, what I would give to breath smoothly again, for oxygen to fill my lungs.
I am frightened as I begin to feel myself fade away, losing my senses.
I slowly lose consciousness, and vanish into the depths of the sea.
