Aquasports - Poem by Bob Oldfield

So now I understand...
Your eyes became too big for your belly
You wanted extra helpings
Of everything
You desired desire
And then submersed yourself
In its wash

You went swimming
Where the water looked fresh and appealing
But now,
Hopelessly out of your depth
And carried along by undercurrents
You call for help

Is anyone listening?

    This poem is too deep for me. But I enjoyed the read. I'll probably spend a little time pondering these lines as I question its meaning.
