Quicksand Vortex

Quivering on the surface
Underneath is chaos
Inching too close now
Cesspool of disaster
Known to be deadly
Sinking, swim desperately
Activate survivor mode
Never believe you are infallible
Death can be the result

Vision is clouded
Opportunity to save self drifting
Relax don`t panic
Try to tread sand like water
Examine your surroundings
X-treme survival tactics

    I liked the diction here, the phrasing, 'cesspool of disaster' and how u crafted the rest of it! Sublime and makes me tink of quicksand indeed in which case it is like water., and the ripples on dunes. Kudos! Nice to read u again, hope u will mine latest too.
