I can feel it coming
Decisions I can’t make
Brain starts to freeze
Fingers won’t work
Sick of this disease
Breathe in; breathe out
 
I am free falling
My legs go weak
Lips dry and numb
Depth perception off
Can’t feel my tongue
Breathe in; breathe out
 
I am still crashing
Muted sounds underwater
My ears want to pop
Watching shaky video
Stuffing face, can’t stop
Breathe in; breathe out
 
Want off this roller coaster
Eyes fill up with tears
For what I can’t explain
Sweaty, throat choked up
Leaves behind a migraine

Pretty good description of drowning. Breathe in, while underwater? Pretty scary feeling.
