One, two, three.
Three, two, one.
Water v. human.
Human v. water.
one, two, three – no, stop.
Water in the lungs.
Beautiful, cool, sweet water
now burning in the passage of the throat
Water, once soothing a patched throat
Now tearing it apart, like fire.
Hands, feet, skin. Splash-splash-move.
Limbs that could do fifty lengths in a pool
Subdued by the fear of the mind
The same mind that drives the human to do wonderful things
And be the ‘pinnacle’ of evolution
Now the cause of the death of this very human
Frozen, going down.
Images. People, memories.
Realizations, truths, lies.
Happiness, grief, elation, depression.
All gone in a matter of moments.
Nothing, can ever trouble anymore.
Peace at last.
