Beach

The sand engulfing me
A tide, a hasty tide
Rolling in.
They frolic through the sand
Giggling, hand in hand.
I reach out, I scream
“Help me! Help me please!”
But, it seems
No sound slipped past my lips.
The waves swallowing me whole
I reach out one more time
One more time.
They fail to see,
What’s drowning me.
