sink

she
sinks
into the ocean.

lets the water lick
lick
lick
over her.

icy
tongues
of current along her skin.

her face dips
into it
under it.

eyes
lips
nose
submerge.

cold, slow darkness.
wet, pulsing heartbeat.

then
she realises she is not
breathing.

and
she
lets her body
rise.
return.

her forehead
breaks
back into the blinding
world.
