The day our ship capsized
I caught one last breath of air
Before diving into the ocean
And the depths of my despair.

I let the tide command me
No use in fighting back
I felt the water fill my lungs
As I sank into the black.

Stranded in the wide expanse
With no-one else around
Desperately kicking into the waves
As I tried to find the ground.

My vision became blurry
My voice had begun to slur
I fought the rope that reached for me
A suicidal saboteur

Until you dived in after me
And placed your lips against me throat
I knew the end was far away
Because you would help me float.
