Favorite Quote:
Take chances because all roads lead to death, might as well have fun on the journey.


I throw my head back
A scream escapes my parched lips
It hangs in the silence
Of the solemn, serene beach
Alone
Save the crash of the waves

I kick my shoes off
Strip down
Shiver in the night air
Gingerly creep toward the foamy water

Then waves are crashing over my feet
And I feel the rough, grainy sand between my toes
I walk in up to my hips
And wait
For the cold to turn me numb
Next up to my shoulders
And wait again

I breathe in the salty air
Look up to the moon
The empty lifeguard station
The still and silent amusement park
I listen to my heartbeat
The waves
The quiet

One last deep breath
A few more steps
And then nothing
But blackness
Blackness and calm
