A watery fate

A witch who was drowned

I never thought it would end this way

Tied up in a burlap sheet

Rocks inside to weigh me down

As they lift me into the air.

The priest says the Devil will take my soul

To roast in the pits of Hell, and I scoff

The evil is here! As I stare at the lake

That is to be my tomb for all time

Nausea threatens to take over

At the thought of that glassy water

Swallowing me whole, stealing my air

Greedily sucking away my life.

The thought of the world turning black

Under that freezing lake

Makes me shudder in horror and dread.

The priest finishes with a flourish

And they throw me up high

After a brief moment of flight

I plunge into the inky darkness to meet my fate.
