- What Matters
I close my eyes and fall into the deep dark abyss.
I picture the ocean with its every moving water.
The water welcomes me.
Asks me to take a swim.
I oblige, and walk until my knees are submerged.
I look down and see the clear water, so peaceful it is.
I keep walking until my shoulders are submerged.
I let the water sway me, left and right.
I become one with the water.
I let all my thoughts fade away with the ocean's calming motions.
I look up at the sky and see the darkness above.
The darkness calls me back to reality.
Reality is the place of my nightmares.
It is the place where I am suffocated.
It is the place where I wish I could escape from.
My fears wait for me in reality.
So I ignore its calls.
I sink further into the water.
Letting it take me away.
Hoping it brings me to a place of peace.
My head sinks underwater, I open my eyes and look around.
I see the golden sand.
The dark corals swaying with the motions of the ocean.
I see the small fishes, so calm they are.
They tell me to close my eyes, and take a deep breath.
I listen to them, I close my eyes, and take a deep breath.
The water fills my lungs, as the ocean rocks my body.
I am calm and at peace.
I don't struggle as it becomes harder to breathe.
I don't try to make my way to the top of the water.
I relax and as I slowly feel myself drowning.
A thought comes to my previously empty mind.
“I am finally free”
A smile spreads across my palling face.
My body starts to go numb from lack of oxygen.
I don't panic, even though there are only a couple of moments left.
As I take my last breath, I let the water rock me to sleep.
