Salty stringing drops of water hit my face. I don’t wince, I just close my eyes, feeling the sway of the boat and the freezing wind blowing my long black hair behind me.
I know well enough by now that all this will soon be right out of my reach. It will disappear right into thin air, as if it was never here.
I open my eyes. The smells and the cold still haven’t left. Only the memories and time that people had here have left.
Not mine however, my memories will stary with me forever until I one day vanish from this world too. I want to scream. I want to cry. But there’s no one to hear me. And no one to comfort me.
Just my small boat and I. Floating in a new unknown world and a now faint memory.
Fading away slowly, the water starts to evaporate into the sky, creating a mist around my boat and I.
A single tear falls off my cheek, immediately evaporating too.
I reach out my hand to the mist.
“Goodbye.” I whisper.
I will not forget this place. I promise.
Forever… yet never.
