The Quarry For dVerse~Poets Pub

From high cliffs
The body of water
Called her
To darkly join

Stepping silently
Into the darkness
Cold water
Embraced her

Eyes open inhaling only
Sinking to her death
She finally knew
She was not alone

I love this one, it is so dark, it reminds me of Virginia Woolf although she drowned in a river.
There is a high cliff near us that many persons have gone over in despair.

This was very good... intense, and so very real. We stand on the cliff and we sink into the water with her. The concern is what state she will find herself in on the other side, will the light be welcoming, or will long for it's warmth as she wanders in the cold?

Your poetry always knows how to dig deep and bring a reaction.

Beautifully written and scary to boot! I would never want to die by drowning! I'm afraid of water!

I try not to wonder how I will die. Hopefully at home with children around me. How terrible to realize you are really not alone..just as you die. Had me scratching my head..but also food for serious thought.
I agree with Outlawer, very sad.
And yet....and yet...

Eyes open
inhaling only.

Only in the final moments finding peace...very sad, but very well done and quite a punch in this.
