Sea Dust

in melancholy •  4 months ago  (edited)


I tumbled downward, into the sand, and rolled effortlessly out into the dazzling, raging seas.

And for (what must have been) miles, I rolled forward until I found myself settled into the darkened planks of a lost shipwreck.

Here, they’ll never find me. I will never know the daylight again, I will never feel the fresh, earthy air upon my face.

Even the shipwreck will not be with me for very long, however, as I will soon wither quickly away into sea dust.

That’s right. Sea dust.

I will sparkle in the sunrise as day breaks, but I will not rise with it.

I have doomed myself to this beautiful ocean of madness, and I will lie as I must...

Here in the shimmers, from water to dust.
