Prattler, Underwater

You can barely see·
Your eyes get blurry
And pain begins to state its presence,
Signalling it is time to shut them tight
Resurface and let them «breathe».

~

Underwater,
You can barely hear·
And as you dive deeper and deeper
The more it hurts, the more it craves
To weaken the pressure,
To resurface and let them «breathe».

~

Underwater,
You can not breathe·
You can only hold your precious air
Enslaved within your lungs, just as you are, in the watery grave
Letting it out,out of need, until there is nothing,
while the nature herself invervenes,
pushing you-forcing you- up
To resurface and let you live.
