Day 19 of 30 Poems/30 Days

‘The Rhythm’

As he sinks,
his heart becomes an anchor,
its chain cut,
pulling him to the bottom.

Above his head
the waves sail on;
an engine for his voyage,
a drumbeat against his bones.

He exhales the last breath,
and the bubbles float away,
tiny balloons blowing up;
like one last message to the world above.
