I am drowning
Drowning in a sea of unshed tears.
Swirling, irridescent, fluid, so beautiful and yet...
Salt like the sea under a night sky
The black inky water mirroring a thousand shining candles
Lighting the way for many a brave traveller, except
I flounder beneath the surface, reaching in vain for just one
Only one bright star
For only a single breath of the satin soft air.
The lights dissolve into a shining darkness, and I sink
To a place of eerie stillness, far beneath the turbulent waves.
Here I will die, in peace and alone.
Drowned in a flood of silent tears.
