Dolphins to water

[You are my sunshine, my only sunshine…]

I held my breath. It was time. I saw the trust in your eyes when I found the way inside. All of you were ready for this ride. You followed me, like you always do. The sun beat down on us as we dove in, ready to explore the cave within. Like dolphins to water, without a doubt. That bright turquoise hue was meant to illuminate you.

[…you make me happy when skies are gray]

I didn’t have a clue that inside that deep blue was actually pain there waiting for you. Waiting for us. We were trapped. Caught in the horror of life to death. Frank was the last to dive in, the last in line, and the first to die. The blood seeped from the slashes on his chest and I watched as he took his last breath. He was family, you see, my cousin’s father; following in the footsteps of his own daughter, searching for adventure, searching for life but destined to pay the price. Without a doubt, like dolphins to water.

[You’ll never know dear how much I love you.]

Now we’re here, trembling in fear, huddled in corners. On repeat. Caught in a time loop of my mistakes, trapped in the cave we‘d claimed. Trying to retreat just to experience defeat. We dive, he dies. We dive, he dies. We dive, we die.

[Please don’t take my sunshine away.]

Shouldn’t I have felt it? Shouldn’t I have known, that we would all die in a wet cave of stone?
