i said nothing
In the dark and in the water I weighed nothing at all. Floating there in the oceanthe frigid,
salty water splashed over my tired, vacant face. Looking up, I saw blackblack with faint
specs of light. The stars seemed so far from here, similar to my troubled life. My mind is blank,
free from worry. I don't have to deal with anything out here.
I felt my cheeks sink in after I drew a deep breath; hollow.
My addiction had finally caught up to me, it was time to let go.
A flashlight shone on me and I jumped; the figure came closer.
"Are you alright?" the voice asked.
...There was too much to say, so I said nothing.
