Death Underwater


Cascading down like a waterfall---I drown a thousand deep


---Suffering underwater----I struggle for air


Lungs fulfill with water, I drank too much than need


Here I am in my death bed---surround with the unknown


------Murdered here alone...my soul wail a sharp cry

This is distinctively Chanroth, invoking in a few short words a fearful image.

Drowning is supposed to be an easy death. It does not seem to me that it would be. This poem illustrates the terror it would bring. Up!
