"I desire the things that will destroy me in the end."- Sylvia Plath

We were both floating

on top of the ocean

at one point in time


if a big wave came 

and dragged me under

you would take my hand

and let me breathe once again


if a wave 

dragged us both under

we would get back up together

and laugh


but little did I know

that was the past

this time you grasped my hand

and pulled me down beneath

the dark water

and this time I couldn’t get back up

Hi my name is Kayla. I wrote this poem about a friendship ending and what it really feels like to lose someone that you were very close to.
