What Took You

The sound of the ocean at night
You’re standing on the beach
It is perfectly black
You can feel the surf pounding
The roar consumes your senses
You start to walk towards it
Feeling for the wet sand on your toes
Now you’re in up to your knees
The waves are starting to sway you
You reach out but find no purchase
You keep moving forward
The din is all encompassing
Water on your outstretched hands
Wave after wave slaps your face
You are being over taken
Breathing your attacker into your lungs
Hoping for equilibrium
As you slip under ocean for the last time
You still have not seen what took you
