“Ocean of Anguish” by Kathryn Warrender


Breathe in,
Breathe out,
The tide is washing away memories.
Forget and forgive,
The waves are thrashing around.
One, two, three, my heart slowly beats,
Slowly, roughly.
Everything needs to empty.
Hear the water,
It beckons.
Come, come closer,
Everything will be fine.
The water, it's cold,
It hurts,
It's like fire,
The shock, the pain, the epiphany!
Hold your breath,
Feel the rush,
The silence is good enough.
