Swallow Me, Sea


A hole burrows deep into the pit of my stomach.
My cheeks flush.
My eyes swell.
Salt water falls off my face and finds refuge in the sea.

Waves stir into a roar.
I crawl towards the infinity before me.
the gold cushion eats at my knees.
the bitter blanket reaches out to me,
Inch by inch the freezing fury
Overwhelms me till I am numb.
Swallow me, sea.
I ask.

the sky is painted with
Powder and ash.
I inhale salt.
the screams of the world turn into
Silence under the wave.
I float with the retreating tide, allowing
the wind to move me like a
Puppet.
I sink.

I am engulfed in the
Charcoal abyss,
Entangled in weeds and darkness.
I close my tired eyes.
Swallow me, sea.
I beg.
