Water all around me.

On all sides.

Ice cold water.

Like a hand from below,

pulling me deeper.

Deep into the unknown.

Must hold on.

Hold on to life.

Waves pushing me away.

Away from the shore.

Away from life.

I will swim.

I will tread water.

I will keep my head

above the water.

I will survive.

    Thanks. I like swimming in a pool, but I’m afraid of deep water.

    Evocative imagery in your poem Susanne and it works so well with the picture of the waves.

      Thank you. The waves make me feel like I was drowning. I’ll keep my head up.
