Breath leaves my lungs once more.

Voice, once strong, is still.

Underwater, sound is muffled.

Slow and heavy I sink.

Hands before me,

fingers lacing with light.

Heart lost its tempo.

Words fail to fall from my tongue.

They rest swollen and thick,

behind aching teeth.

Keep trying.

Nails claw the water.

Keep pushing.

Liquid fills my chest.

Keep fighting.

Wordless screams break from my lips.

Breach the surface.

Reborn in morning light.

Breathe in the salt laden air.

Wind fills my lungs once more.

Voice, once quieted, sounds its siren song.
