    Drowning

    I take a step toward the waves,
    One foot then two.
    I embrace the chilling cold,
    waters of you.

    As the water rises,
    lapping around my waist.
    I see the sand disappear,
    like it was erased.

    The water went grey,
    a reflection of the sky.
    How I ended up this deep,
    I may never know why.

    I know I can’t turn back,
    For that it’s too late.
    Water all around me,
    As I realize my fate.

    I’m sinking slowly,
    As the sunlight fades to blue.
    I never thought I’d die,
    Drowning in you.
