life

 

drowning

yanked into the current

arms flailing, head bobbing

struggling to stay

afloat

then suddenly succumbing

expectations expectations submerging underwater expectations expectations

expectations expectations voices fill the air expectations expectations

expectations captivating expectations

expectations  mesmerizing expectations

 expectations expectations a Siren's seducing song expectations expectations

expectations expectations expectations expectations expectations

expectations  expectations  letting go expectations expectations

expectations  expectations completely forgetting expectations expectations

expectations expectations one's identity expectations expectations

expectations expectations expectations expectations expectations

expectations  expectations slipping past a rock expectations expectations

expectations  expectations trying one last time expectations expectations

hands scrabbling, arms straining

finally getting away

engulfed in silence

briefly

before being

expectations  expectations swept away expectations  expectations

expectations  expectations again expectations expectations

expectations expectations expectations expectations expectations
