I am only but dreaming

I am only but dreaming I am sinking, into the deep,crisp,blue ocean. I am falling underneath the salty ocean. I don’t want to come up for air. I like being under; feeling and seeing, the green seaweed and clear jellyfish pass my feet. I don’t mind, the sand rushing up from underneath It’s all calm and quiet beneath the sound of the waves, and the sound of the seagulls cries. I am running, out of air. I can’t breathe, but it’s so pretty down here, the fish passing by me. I am drowning , no oxygen leaving my frail body. I like the calmness of death, the gentle ease of saying goodbye... To the green seaweed, to the sound of the seagulls cries. I like this feeling as I lie on the sandy ocean floor. It’s so peaceful.
