Into the Deep

Strolling along the shore,
Sand dissolving beneath my feet.
As the tide lures it away,
So it pulls me too.

Pushing and pulling,
Pulsing back and forth.
Does it warn me away,
Or beckon me forward?

My chest feels the pressure,
As further I journey.
Not easy to breathe, 
Impossible to stop.

Floating,
Weightless,
Lifeless,
Embarking on darkness.
