“Maybe the truth was, it shouldn't be so easy to be amazing. Then everything would be. It's the things you fight for and struggle with before earning that have the greatest worth. When something's difficult to come by, you'll do that much more to make sure it's even harder--if not impossible--to lose.” ― Sarah Dessen, Along for the Ride

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.

I wrote this piece because sometimes life gets to be a lot. This makes me want to fade away.
