adrift
no shore in sight
kicking away at the waves
crashing against my heart
losing my breath

skin
cold, clammy
desperate for warm touch
the breeze light, yet deliberate
swallows my body whole

deep breaths
lungs shallow and wavering
struggling to catch my breath
I wait

wait for warm touch again
wait for the light in the distance

bones ache
dark clouds extinguish the light out
thunder deep and prolonged in the distance
a menacing, yet familiar sight

adrift
no shore in sight
kicking away at the waves
crashing against my heart
losing my breath
