I know whatís above me, but not whatís below.
Above me has been trouble, so further down Iíll go.
It seems so silent, but not quiet at all.
Darkness surrounds me the further down I fall.
No one has seen this, no one else but me.
But I must be careful in this foreboding sea.
Itís easy to forget things in itís black and coldembrace.
Maybe Iíll stay here and they can find me in this place.
Problems are so subtle, almost an unnoticeable change.
They creep up on you, and nothing even seems strange.
I feel quite euphoric, almost happy again.
I may even take a dance with my new cold, dark friend.
As we dance itís deeper and deeper I go.
Troubles are forgotten in this beautiful show.
I know whatís below me, but not whatís above.
It squeezes tighter and tighter but I know itís with love.
Now there nothing but darkness, not even light overhead.
I spit out my life, and lay down my head.
Maybe theyíll find me, but who really cares.
Iíll be in their hearts, maybe even their prayers.
Still semi-conscious, but I know itís the end.
So itís time for me to say goodnight to my cold, dark friend.

|Carry a spare tank & keep an eye on that depth gauge or you will most certainly join the many that have gone down to the sea with both tanks and air lines and such...be safe & get those pictures on your website and let us know your site address, I want to see some of them...Ed & Rufuz (w00f)|
