There was this one time,

Many, many years ago,

Where I slipped into a river.

Succumbed by water,

I tried to swim, tried to breathe.

Opened my eyes to see.

Pink. No, red.

Red water?

I was swimming in blood.

Letting it enter my body,

Letting it give me life.

Flailing limbs relaxed,

Freezing skin warmed.

Air drew to a stop.

But as long as I had my blood,

I could go on forever.

I could become infinite.

Eternally condemned

To floating and drowning.
