Into the ocean the pieces of my heart fell,
Like a sand castle tumbling down,
Swept up by the lapping waves,
Disappearing into the turbulent abyss of blue.
The waves that crashes against the shore,
Beckons with the foamy tendrils of their arms.
Slithering and extending towards the empty shell
That once contained life and joy.
The tendrils snake towards my cold body,
Until the sand gave 'way,
And I was slowly dragged into the ocean.
The ocean gurgled and foamed,
Nipping at my fingers as my world tipped.
The sand slips from between my grasps,
I invite Darkness like an old friend,
Arms open wide as I continue to sink.
The coldness embraces me,
Presses against me,
And then it swallows me whole.
An endless pit of sorrow
That I can't escape.
I claw at the water desperately,
Desperate for air;
I keep sinking.
I look up to see blurred faces
Of people I once knew.
But they don't help me.
I'm still alone.
I close my eyes,
And slowly my body falls limp.
I've given up,
And dissolve into the darkness,
That claims me for its own.
