She came to comfort me.
I opened up myself.
She sensed my pain, easing it.
Laying a hand on my chest, she laid me down gently.
I started to gasp for breath
All I could see now was her.
Inhaling her body, so thick and dark.
My eyes started glazing over.
Feeling foggy, I let her muse my thoughts.
Feeling numb, I let her take my pain away.
Going to sleep, I let her watch me…
…Watching me drown.
Letting her take me, the sea swallowed me up whole.
And then all was blue.
