she closes her eyes and listens to the

bath water running as

she lets her clothes fall in messy

piles on the floor.

steam condenses on the mirrors.

she can no longer see herself.

she bites her lips, dry and cracked,

and steps into the water.

a scream wells inside of her.

filling up her mouth, it overflows.

her feet turn red but she keeps them

submerged, letting the fire crawl up

her body.

she falls, water spilling over the

edge of the pearly white


her hair floats next to her as she looks up

at the surface of the water.

everything feels so cold.

i am a mermaid. she thinks. that never learned how to

         breath underwater.

she smiles, letting the water fill up her


finally, letting the inevitable

take over.
