That Death May Come


That Death May Come


Waves crash upon me,

 deep breath now.

        They swallow me,

taking me deep beneath

            the rising crest.





 in darkness.

The final surge of

            life leaving me.


I’m sinking into the abyss,

that death may come


like a kiss.
