I Reside Beneath the Waters

I reside beneath the waters -
Awaiting chance to breathe
The sun dangles above me
My lungs yearn - and seethe -

Ocean - the oppressor -
Strangling the aquatic
The dawn is thwarted -
The soul - nearly catatonic

Hoisted by ethereal flames -
Gasping for existence
Head aloft the battle -
Still the body in resistance --
