I dream about being underwater.

Not drowning,

but the currents have hands

and they tug at my limbs.

Grip onto me and I am

a trapped fish.

My fear hooks me

into a wide eye panic

and the world ripples above

in squiggle people faces and tree blurs.

I struggle to get out of the water.

Kick feet fight and hand reach help,

but the currents keep me here-

under the water,

in blurred surroundings,

within my fear.
