Ode to Salt Waters

Cold waves touch my feet, bringing tears to my eyes,
as I struggle with the burden of my sins.
The chosen pathway unknowingly leads me
deep into the chasm.

The distant hills echo my agonized cries
luring me with compassion I got nowhere,
even as the twilight sky left me lonely
with nothing but void.

Losing my last chance to go back forever,
I stand alone, begging the sea to take me
away to the point of no return. For me,
life is an abyss.
