Drowning

When you initially hit the water, it’s cold. Almost numbing. Everything is slow. You’re slowly sinking deeper and deeper. The surface begins to move farther from your reach. You try and hold your breath attempting to not let the water in, but then you give in. Bubbles quickly escape towards the surface. Soon enough you realize you need more air. You can’t breathe. It hurts. Struggling only makes it harder. You stop trying to make it back to the surface. The water starts to enter your lungs, and you let it. You finally breathe. You give in, and breathe.
