Standing midst nowhere.
Just the land and sky running miles and miles away infinite.
The zephyr blows.
The sand beneath me sweeps my feet.
Gently caressing my cheeks
Gently caressing my cheeks and stroking my hair, flowing freely.
I look up at the clear blue sky
I look up at the clear blue sky, with no whites for contrast.
I close my eyes as the wind now strengthens and feel it fondling my neck and up to my arms and legs.
A chill runs down my body
making me want to huddle up into a ball
making me want to huddle up into a ball to protect myself from the cold.
But my stance on stiffness as I sense that
the breeze is no longer here to play.
The current intensifies and my hands fumble as I raise it up against my face
The current intensifies and my hands fumble as I raise it up against my face, acting as a resistance of what is more to come.
My feet dig into the sand
My feet dig into the sand, my arms shake
My feet dig into the sand, my arms shake and my teeth grit.
I try to stand strong but my body trembles
and I feel myself slowly being dragged backwards.
My eyes compelled to be closed.
The wind starts to numb my skin.
My fingertips feel as they might break off when the gale cuts between its gaps.
The frigid air now no longer caresses
The frigid air now no longer caresses but bites
into my flesh like a beast thirsty for blood.
The redness in me fades away
The redness in me fades away turning me into a white ghost.
The rosy cheeks lose their color
The rosy cheeks lose their color, sucking into my cheekbones.
The rosy cheeks lose their color, sucking into my cheekbones. My lips now just a thin white line barely noticeable.
Amongst the chaos I perceive a subtle breeze
Amongst the chaos I perceive a subtle breeze, like a whisper in my ears
Amongst the chaos I perceive a subtle breeze, like a whisper in my ears, singing a lullaby for the dead.
I freeze for a moment a realize that
this is the end.
The wind now strikes as knives piercing up my bones.
Imprinting deep slits down my figure.
Tearing my dress into pieces.
The pain excruciates me as I open my mouth to let out a scream
but it was never heard as it drowns in the strong blows.
My skin peels and drops of blood fly
My skin peels and drops of blood fly, exposing my worn out muscles.
The bodice shreds off
The bodice shreds off, revealing my bare chest.
Heart beating a thousand beats visible.
The veins dry as the blood drains out.
My lungs freeze
My lungs freeze and the last of air in me escapes.
Bit by bit I degrade down to my bones.
My once beautiful face now a lifeless skull.
The bones grow fragile and start to turn into dust.
Merging with the wind and sand.
With each second my existence disperses in the air to nothing.
And the gale stops.
The blue sky crystal clears
The blue sky crystal clears and the sand lies motionless in peace.
As if nothing ever occured
while my flesh and blood lies crumbled on the ground within.
