PT – Drowning

And then she knew.

Advertisements

She was surrounded by blue.
Turquoise? Sapphire? Azure?
No, more like a green streaked with gold.

Her eyes were opened lazily,
Half-asleep;
Her limbs floating beside her numbly,
Flying.

ZzZzZzZZ, buzzing…
Buzzing?
ZzZzZzZZ, pressure…
Pressure?

She was being strangled from the inside;
She couldn’t breathe.

She could only think:
Is this a dream?

Through her eyelashes she could see:
Rays of light,
The shining gold.
Masses of bubbles,
The sparkling cerulean.

But something was wrong
despite the beauty of it all;
Her lungs,
Her nose,
Her mouth,
Her eyes.

What?

Her body jerked.

Her lungs screamed,
screamed, for air.

And then she knew.
She was drowning.
