Rushing, swirling, engulfing water
Covering all as panic grasps the crew.
The icy sea performing human slaughter,
There is nothing we can do.
Frantically, the captain rushes women
And children into boats, small and teeming
With desperate people. We have fallen
Deeper into plunging waves, screaming
Into the dark, empty night, no one is near
As fate paints the portrait of death.
To all, hope is lost. Surrounding us is fear.
But wait! The ship has stopped; we catch our breath.

Then deep, black darkness surrounds all. We can't resist

As life slips from our corpses, sinking down to the abyss.

eeck, creepy. I like it though- good job. I'm a big fan of rhyme scheme, and you've got that here. Titanic is one of my favorite movies; I'd love to go diving and see the "Unsinkable Boat" myself.

I like the wording and the way it makes you picture what was happening.
