Last Gasp

I'm drowning in the sea
Someone keeps pulling me down
And I realize I'm going to die
Because I can't catch my breath
I am dragged down by the entirety
Of this life I have created
And soon my lungs will burst
If I don't disentangle myself from it
I wish now more than ever
For a lifeguard who sees the plight I'm in
To swim and save me

The beach is empty here
There is nobody but me
Me and the crazy old woman of the sea
Who knows better than I
About what I I need
She's killing me and with good reason
I just don't want to accept her
Or what she knows must be done
I fight and I'm still fighting
When it would be far less painful
To accept her embrace
