And so she stood

Alone and cold

No longer so bold

Her head lowered down

Her hands hung to the ground

She looked over her shoulder

Hoping to see yet never wanting to see

What she didn't see anyway

And so she stood

Alone and cold

No longer so bold

The wind whispered down

Slit between the trees

Grey upon the clouds

She looked over her shoulder

Hoping to see

Yet never wanting to see

What she didn't see anyway

And so she stood

Alone and cold

No longer so bold

She moved her feet

And wrapped her arms around her own

She felt the chill

Gripping her bones

She looked over her shoulder

Hoping to see

Yet never wanting to see

What she didn't see anyway

And so she stood

Alone and cold

No longer so bold

The water moved so silently

So far down below

Her eyes peered over

She looked over her shoulder hoping to see

Yet never wanting to see

What she didn't see anyway

And so she stood

Alone and cold

No longer so bold

She looked back down

At the serenity of the gray water

And watched as it came closer

Consuming her whole

And so she stood

Alone and cold

No longer so bold

And for one final time

She looked over her shoulder

Hoping to see

Yet never wanting to see

And there he stood

Alone and cold

No longer so bold

Her lungs filled with water

Her heart filled full
