WaterI lap at your feet, welcoming you into my depths.
Seducing your toes to step closer, wade further
Its a cool day, and I offer warmth and comfort
Begging you to swim, even though you know
That danger lurks with me

A sway into danger,
Cant be that bad,

There were a number of us who had become very frustrated at how long it was taking, but it was not as if the forces of nature ever had to listen to what we thought.

Water so heavy that I float listlessly
On its surface yet feel also like I am sinking
Sinking and floating so effortlessly
This injection that sent me back to the womb
Where my mind begins to format itself
A sudden sharp pain opens my eyes
And my mind to this cocoon like environment
The warmth starts to leave my being
My body trembles and begins to shake

As the rush of the new drug causes me
To rewrap myself in my own warm embrace
The trembling and shaking cease
Warmth returns to fuel my mind and body
And the cycle starts over again for I am
