Everyone Falls Under Water

I stand on the shoreline.
Thinking about all the hallow nights. 
My mind filled with hallow thoughts. 
All my fears froze as I went under. 
Not caring was peaceful.
Until it wasn’t. 
My eyes were not closed, but I only found darkness. 
I stand underneath. 
Everything holding me back keeps me under longer. 
As waves crash over my head. 
I start to swim toward shore.
