Drowning in the sea of her life

If her world was the sea, she was drowning in it. Bubbles rising from her face, drifting to the surface as she falls deeper and deeper. Light glimmering from the surface, slowly fading with each inch she falls. Deeper, deeper, deeper. Deeper into the darkness she sinks. She tries to swim but her body only falls deeper. Darkness, drowning in the sea of darkness. Her legs floating upward, her arms no longer reaching for the surface. Lifeless limbs floating as her body finds the bottom.
