Her footsteps led to the edge of the ocean.
Empty thoughts, drifted like rolling waves.
Salt blown tears captured her cheeks,
as she gazed apon the endless sea.
A step closer and her feet are submerged.
Blank stare, moonlit night
the chill of winter touched her skin.
Toes become numb, a complete loss of feeling.
Waves roll up to her knees,
shaking her to her core.
Drifting further into the sea of regret.
Sounds of rolling thunder, as lightning echoed across the sky
Though all she can hear is the sound of her racing heart.
Waist deep in bitter waters,
stings like life did, before her.
Hands balled into fist, turning knuckles white
Giving in, giving up
Fist open like a reckoning or awakening.
Her body weightless as the ocean takes over.
She feels nothing and everything like a rush of morphine.
The calm takes over, leaving her floating along the foam
like all her hopes and dreams of home.
She no longer fights for control
Her hands outstretched to the skies
In the sea of darkness
her body drifts into the unknown.
The only sound, she once heard…was gone.
Her last breaths are shallow
her heart and pain finally slows
arms at her side, as her body sinks into the night.
Only the moon and the stars know of her plight.
As they watched silently on that cold winters night.
