the waves have stopped.  instead i am adrift, in this ocean.  once in a while my head bobs under and there is no relief from the water, the water, the water.
it overwhelms and my eyes burn from the harsh reflection of the sun.  i am at once at peace and overcome.

when i hear sirens it throws me to that day.  i've never liked them, i used to offer up silent prayers for whomever they were going to help.  now i realize that sometimes it is already too late to pray by the time you hear them.  if only,ifonly,ifonly.  a whisper of a thought (this could be different) but of course, it isn't, it won't, it can't.  why? WHY?  there are no answers.

choose from available options:
E. none of the above
