Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.
-Stephen King

I've fallen victim to the sea.
Now I can't catch my breath,
and I'm constantly reminded
of the unending wrath...

The unending wrath of the water,
Filling my mouth as I gasp.
I see the shore ahead,
but it's out of my grasp.

I'm a prisoner to the ocean.
She's holding me captive,
and despite all she's done,
I don't care what happens.
