Hi! Can somebody tell me if it is okay to say: "you dived adrift into/in/on"? The context would be: "The silky ribbon of despair silently dragged your numb body into a frozen darkness... And for what it seemed an eternity, you dived adrift in/into/on that lonely and calm sea..."
I always have problems with that... Well, thanks in advance!

    No - that doesn't work. It is not clear what you are trying to convey, but I imagine that...
    ... and for what seemed an eternity, you were cast adrift on that lonely, calm sea...

    ... is what you mean.
