It was the dolphins swimming just under the surface, that spoke to her,
somehow their joy lifted her, she loved their jumping.
As she breathed in the ocean, she sighed
heavily as she searched in her purse.
It was a dumb idea really,
she took out the sleeping pills,
looked at the bottle,
one more time
and tossed it
into the ocean.
For today at least, she wanted to live,
she hoped silently
