"No matter how dark the sky, you'll always have the stars."


Waves roll around me
crashing
bobbing me along.

I dive
through the murky depths
down
to the ocean floor.

I stretch my hands
press them
against the bottom
holding on
with dear life

the current pulls
I lose my grip
grasping at the sand
desperately

I hit the sand
hard
and float
twisting
in the water

bubbles
flood my ears
salt
stings my nose
I surface
coughing violently

and all I got
was a fistful of sand
