And you sink deeper and deeper until it is impossible to sink any further, yet it is still not the bottom.
Your lungs burn. Your vision blurs and darken at the edges. You wish for a blank slate, a second chance to do everything differently. But as you feel fire burn in your lungs as you push your last breaths out, and see darkness encroach your vision, you know. You know that second chances are myths told by people in denial.
You feel heaviness in your limbs. You feel the cold water prickle your skin. And as you feel like you’re burning and freezing at the same time, you succumb to the darkness.
