  • I jumped ship to find myself at the end of the world. The sky and sea are the same shade of uninterrupted grey.

    I begin to swim, hoping that I choose the shortest path to land.

    But I'm lost and tired.

    My heart sank a long time ago, and I am about to join it.

    As I regain consciousness halfway through my 2nd period economics class, I wish that it wasn't just a daydream.
