Two notes, like a single heart beat, a glimpse,
A shadow, that uneasy feeling creeps
Into your stomach, the beat increases
Something brushes past bare legs and startles,
Too far from shore; just try to keep afloat.
The beat again, a tug, a gasp, shock, fear
Screaming will do no good, it's too late now.
No real comprehension of the nightmare
Unfolding beneath the surface, gasp, splash!
Then silence. Relax, it's just a movie.
