Favorite Quote:
"And thus the words were spoken,
And this the plighted vow,
And though my faith be broken,
And though my heart be broken,
Behold the golden token,
That proves me happy now!"
-Edgar Allan Poe's "The Bridal Ballad"

Waves crash over me,
As you stand before me.
I try to fight them,
But your holding me down.
I struggle to breathe,
You push me further down.
I fight the pressure of the water,
You just stare blankly.
I fight harder
As you begin to cry.
Why are you doing this?
You cry harder as my struggles seem pointless.
I'm fighting the inevitable.
Your heart breaks, you cry
As you push me even further in the water.
I lose the will,
You push harder, straining me.
You cry more,
As I slowly slip out of consciousness.

The struggle is over.
You release me,
Fall on the floor crying,
I float to the top, cold, dead.

The author's comments:
My main inspiration is Edgar Allan Poe, but I pull things from what I observe. I hope people get something out of this piece, I believe for everyone it will be something different, but that's just the fun of poetry.
