Girl Underwater


United States
40° 45' 54.792" N, 111° 50' 31.0344" W

Down deep under,
The pressure is crushing me.
It's hurting to breathe.

I'm scared.
I don't know what to do.
I don't even know what's going on.
But it's all too compact
with the walls closing in.

I scream. I panic.
I'm not so sure myself why.
Chaos in my head,
just make it go away.

I want to sleep.
I want to go away,
I want things to fog up and evaporate..

I want peace please,
I feel like I'm drowning,
I'm asking peace please,
I'm the girl stuck underwater.
