As the boat floated farther and farther away from me, I noticed the rope hanging limp in my hands. Quickly, I tightened my grip. Then tighter. Then tighter. I gripped and twisted as much as I could as I noticed my shipmates gradually shrinking into blobs, insignificant and vague individuals. A million thoughts polluted my mind as I saw them sail. Why is this happening to me, Why am I here, Why am I not interesting enough. My body shivered involuntarily in the lukewarm water and I swallowed with a bit of effort. The fish tickled my toes but I noted that that did not make up for the sudden and unwelcome pang of complete loneliness that I felt as I remained stationary. I noticed that I was quickly and thoughtlessly deserted and surrounded by fish while all I really wanted to be surrounded by was you.
