Slipping a way

I feel my hand.

It seems to be dieing.

But my heart is still beating

and I'm still breathing.

I feel the ship

and the sea rocking me back and forth.

I taste the salt in the air

and hear the pirates shout

"Drop anchor!"

We must have landed.

But it won't matter any more.

Since I'm almost gone.

I can't feel my body now.

Am I dead?

I hear foot steps above me.

"I'm going to go get her."

I close my eyes as the foot steps get nearer.

Every thing goes dark.

"Here you are"

I open my eyes and see the pirate lean over me.

But I never opened my eyes.

I guess I have finally slipped away.

The End
