"We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown."
Since water is a powerful symbol of human subconscious, the drowning here seems to indicate the merging of the outer and inner layers of the speaker's self. If we take the "you" in the poem to be another person, how do we explain this drowning?
