This Ship Is Sinking

By SinisterSinner

This ship is sinking,
I can feel the cold of the waves,
Pulling me down to the depths,
Slowly my body gives way,
To the pressure crushing me,
And i can see the light fading away,
Down to the dark i sink,
When will i hit bottom i question myself,
Water starts filling my lungs,
How much longer must i suffer,
Before i'm gone,
Minutes turn to hours,
And hours turn to days,
My mind is racing,
As i sink beneath the waves,
This ship is sinking,
And i cannot be saved.
