Pressure pounding
Heart battering against my chest
I breathe out and sink into the deep
Light behind me dimmers
I love the endless dark yet fear it
Dive slowly into empty unknown
I’ve been here before
Drowned but I just can’t help it
What lies beneath completes me
Eventually I’m found
Gentle arms pull me deeper
Warmth in the frigid abyss
There you are
Eyes of a serene glow
A hungry smile on your lips
