I was thrown in the ocean

I was thrown in the ocean

I was thrown in the ocean,
beneath moon, and dark skies.
Cold water engulfed me.
Salt burned in my eyes. 

I remember the beating;
Body broken- and numb. 
I remember the panic,  
I remember the gun…

I was thrown in the ocean.
Lungs burned in my chest
light played on the surface
body claimed by the depths.
