Written with the prompt from WCC a few months ago.
Prompt: Im dying of thirst in the middle of the ocean

I'm dying
Silent and still
They're dying too
I fall asleep to the screams
Loud and shrill
They break through my slumber

I cannot bear this torture
Nothing will free me of this nightmare
… It must be done
There is no alternative

This pain
It drags me to the depths
I cannot move
I cannot reach freedom

My lungs are burning
My throat is dry
Light is fading
Blackness is consuming me
Goodbye reality

I'm dying
Dying of thirst
In the middle of the ocean.
