Caught in the whirlpool of life’s tide,
blue depths drag me under.
Air unobtainable as lungs labour
for some semblance of breath
yet fail to inflate.
Suspended I float.
Despondent lapis eddy’s swirl
in overwhelming currents
to carry consciousness away.
Charybdis wins and I sink
into Poseidon’s eager embrace.
