Down Under

i almost drowned in the ocean...........

my dream weekend away... good company, taking a break from my hectic work schedule, and at an amazing holiday destination by the sea...............it is saturday 11h30, we arrive at the beach....it is my 1st time here, it looks a bit diffrent that in my home town.........but the sea is so powerfull, so beautifull always speaks deep into your soul.

I take off my dress, put on some sunscreen and ly in my bikini, the sun is baking, really hot, i can feel the sweat dripping of my face, forming little drops all over my body..........after10minutes i have to go swim, cool down in the ocean........i get up to go swim, and ask my friend to join me, he has just had a swim, but are keen to join me. I am happy that he is coming with......as i secretly whish he will wisk me in my arms, once we in the water, kiss me softly on my forehead,look into my eyes and make them twinkle........

We are swimming together but yet apart........my idillic dreams is not how my female brain planned it to be, i love the ocean and decide to swim a bit deeper, to get the feeling that i want, that rush.........from the sea........to dive underneath and to feel free.........unexpected the 1st big wave knock me over...........this has never happened before..........the current has never been this strong..........i laught it off, think, this is funny, wow the current is strong, i swim deeper, but before i know it i am in to deep, the current is to strong and i can't really swim back, it keeps pulling me deeper. I turn around to my friend and keep my hand streched out.......come fetch me.......i still don't realise that this is not a joke........i really am in trouble...........he warns me that i am directly opposite big rocks and that the sea will force me straight into them, and i will get seriously hurt...........i try to swim to him, away from the rocks............but i can't , it is slowly sucking me closer and closer to the rocks, waves braking, with a enourmous swoosh on each rock,,,,,,,,filled with sharp mussels, he points the direction i must swim in, but i can't , i am helpless, i feel like a puppet on a string, the see is playing with me, wanting to lift me up and forcefully smash me against the rocks........i try to fight, but i can't, i can feel the rocks, is see them, i touch them, they are sharp, my hands are bleeding, he tells me to get away from the rocks..........get away, get away........he keeps screaming...........i look up into his eyes,,,,,,,,like a deer with desperation, that is looking at a lion, before it attackes, my eyes are begging , pleading, help me, i can't.........can't you see, i have no power, before i know it, i am being sucked into a whirlpool, i hit the bottom on the ocean.......my mouth, my lungs fill up with water,,,,i think...........oooooooooohh god is this what it feels like for someone that drowned......i panic,,,,,,,,,i come up for air, as i take a breath, choke, spit.........the next wave comes and sucks me deep deep down, i am trapped in a strong wirlpool, bashing underneath the water against the sharp rocks,,,,,,,,,,,,i secretly wish, i just die........it is awefull to feel so helpless, no power no control, i don't want to die,,,,,,,,,,,but the sea is god, it is strong, it makes the decisions not me.......i can see that on the otherside of the rocks is the shore.........i am so so close, it is actuallu not deep, but there is a big hole that has formed, where i am, because of the whirlpool, i get sucked down under.........and i know in my mind..........this is it........to much water in my lungs, i cannot carry on like this, i want to , but i can't..........i come up for air..........i see someone running towards me...........he comes form the right hand side........running, i try and lift me head as much as i can.........and scream...........help.............my voice is pure pure desperation.........it is not me that is screaming........it is my life...........my soul............it is screaming on behalf of me..........he tell's me he can't lift me up, as i will crash on the rocks, he can't lift me over, i scream...........help, i don't care, if he drags my body over the sharp rocks, i want out, i need out, i can't swim around to a safe place...........just pull me out............i decide deep inside..........to go down one last time. when my feet hit the bottom, i must try and jump up, to be able to grap his hand..........i come up, i jump,i grab his hand, and am never letting go.........he alsmost get's sucked in...........but he does not let go...........he drags me over the rocks.........i lie on the sand..........i shake...........i feel like getting sick...........i shake...........it is over.........i am alive...........but know one knows.............what i have just experienced..........how do i explain this.....my friend comes over..........he ask if i am okay.........those words seems so meanlingless.......I wish he were the one that rescued my.......i wish he was my hero..........i am numb.......

the day carried on...........as if nothing happened...........but i feel diffrent...........i cannot explain......to someone who has not experienced it..........how it feels..........when your life is almost taken........
