Black Rock

Loosen your limbs it said
Loosen and let me take you.
My black rock heavier than your shallow breaths
A delirious sleep that fills your ears and thick as treacle wraps your lungs.
You won’t feel it.
Just a fleeting gasp and then nothing.
Close your eyes if it makes it better.
Just close your eyes.
One, two then on my count it said
Don’t be afraid.
Just stop swimming.
