night of january 3, 2013
it was the middle if the night, I was sitting on the sea shore staring out into the darkness. The ocean looked like it was a perfect reflection of the nonexistent stars in the dark cloudy sky. The stars bobbed with waves and every now and then one would sink only to come back up after a few seconds.
I felt a hand on my shoulder and someone whispered in my ear, "They're gone".  I got into a boat and out I went into the sea of stars to look for "Them". After a long while I passed two strange structures coming out of the water, they looked like piles of rusty scrap metal. It felt like something dangerous lived there so I decided to ignore the odd place and continue my search elsewhere. Soon after leaving that place I found the boat that "they" had used.
Next thing I know I'm in the water and I'm sinking deeper and deeper. I wasn't afraid but I wasn’t happy either. The stars that surrounded me gave off comforting warmth. But their glow still couldn’t penetrate the darkness surrounding them. As I sank deeper the water grew colder and the stars began to fade from sight. Soon I reached the bottom and the water had an icy chill. I could see nor hear, everything was black, and deathly silent, still I was not afraid.
I walked along the bottom, not knowing where i was going. i walked and walked  until I found a giant angler, its esca lighting only its face the rest of its body was shrouded in darkness. Suddenly, like being slapped in the face, the fear hit me. I felt like I running as far away as I can, but I didn’t move. I stood there; staring at the giant fish, as the darkness of the sea slowly consumed me.
I’m back on the sea shore and I look around to find that it was only ever me on this small island of sand.
It was only ever me and this starry sea.
