a downward current pulls her under sinks her like a grain of salt water bars the sun from warming refracted rays distort and turn her vision blue liquid pressure bursts her eardrums clogs every pore with brine her heart gives out as oxygen is crushed from the alveoli and anoxia destroys her brain   if only she would shift her weight in time reach up her arms her course would change but no one told her or she never heard my sunshine how painless it can be to rise again break through the surface fill her lungs with air and reclaim life
