A Different Ending

A Different Ending

We’ve died a thousand times this way,
so I’d like something different
, you say
as we sink under the cold waves.

Suddenly, we’re falling through the air,
the wind threatening to tear me apart:
How is this any better? I scream,

but you can’t hear me as you fall faster
than I do, hitting your terminal velocity
and leaving me to plummet alone.
