The icy cold liquid is wrapped around me.
Dragging me further below the surface.
Into the deep.
I feel the air bursting within my chest.
Fighting for release,
Fighting to escape.
Into the deep I plunge.
My eyes remain shut to the frigid, watery darkness that consumes all in its path.
I sink deeper as the bubbles make a hasty retreat.
My eyes betray me,
I see a mythical creature from the deep.
