Rush

One minute 

That is all I have before the wave of oblivion crashes over me 
And force its salt crusted lips onto my mouth 
Giving me a watery kiss of death 
Should I run?  
Or would it be as useless as putting a grain of sand in the desert? 

Forty-five seconds 

The wave swells with power as my thoughts swell with uncertainty  
I decide that my feet 
(Still burning from electricity) 
Will revive and be moved 

Right  

Left 

Right  

Left 

Thirty seconds 

It was almost here, I thought  
Almost here 
The angry wave was foaming, 
Tall as the Empire State, leaning like the Pisa, 
My heart crumbling like the Coliseum  
Yet my walking turns to running 

Fifteen seconds  

I finally forced my eyes 
(Still blurry from adrenaline) 
To stare at the welcoming safety of the forest 

right left right left right left right  

I could not hear the impact of my foot and the dirt 
As my ears have been washed out by the roaring seas 

Ten seconds 

I devoured the salty taste of the ocean's spit, 
Causing my open wounds to sizzle 

9 

Crash! 

8 

I need to get up, I need to- 

7 

-move, but my body melted to the ground 

6 

I am too late  

5 

He found me 

4  

I swallowed my last supper; the ocean breeze 

3  

Poseidon's body crashes on my flesh 

2 

As I stare at the cerulean; endless in my burning eyes 

1 

I dissolve
