I let my head fall back
Held up by nothing but the buoyancy of salt and water
My body relaxes, slowly sinking down into the depths
A million shades of blue.
Waves enclose my body like a casket
Pulling me into the seas embrace
Caressing my body
With the gentlest of hands.
Any sound I can hear is muffled and distant
Light is broken up and scattered about
Dancing in rhythm with the oceans movements
The water is cool and refreshing on my skin.
I'm watching as the world drifts further and further from view
Taking my thoughts with it
My conscience trickles away
Seeping into the surrounding droplets of sky.
My mind is quiet
The only feeling left is peace
My heartbeat slows
To match the steady back and forth.
I can feel my eyes closing
The movement sending ripples through the still water
A trail of bubbles escapes my lips
Rising up toward the surface as I continue my descent.
My body finally settles on the ocean floor
My heart is still while my spirit vacates my soul
The last sensation is the waves hands depositing me onto the sand
And everything fades to black.
