Ocean Tangles

These waves licked my heels, beckoning me to their salty paradise. Wrapped around my ankles, desperately clinging to me, the currents sang: “We want you,” they coaxed and oozed, “come back to us.” Each time a swell crashed, I tried harder to resist. My face was stricken with tears, as well as sea spray, and my own will to live drove me to stand every time I had fallen. But, these forces proved to be a power strong enough to overcome me, and I hear the wind whisper one more thing before I tumble backward and the ocean rushes up to gobble my limp being: “Goodbye.”
