Drowning in the Ocean

I'm drowning in the ocean running out of breath With no one close to save me and not a second left My faith is getting weary, my vision is quite blurred, I don't know what to do, my thoughts are so unsure How do I end this nightmare it's hopeless Death is here at its closest I'm breathless The ocean waves push And fight me with such strength my life slowly fading walking on the plank My feet touch the bottom As I scramble to arise Quickly wiping tears that slip from my eyes How do I end this nightmare it's hopeless Death is here at its closest I'm breathless I take a deep breath as water enters pores while time decides to escape between closed doors Trying to breath out surrounded by a trap Water filling space between every gap How do I end this nightmare it's hopeless Death is here at its closest I'm breathless Darkness covers my eyes There’s not a thing I see Every thought in mind Is slowly disappearing I never wanted to end Especially this way But as the life of a flower death shall not delay.
