I swam for miles and trawled the murky depths of the ocean.

I was hoping to find remnants of me, the person I used to be.

All I could see were ghosts washed out to sea.

I swam back to the shore.

I gazed up at the sky as if expecting to find myself there.

Only echoes hung in the air.

I travelled through space and time, trying to find myself somewhere.

The landscape was the same, but nothing of me remained.

Now I am standing on the edge of nowhere, waiting for my return.
