Flat Line

Qian Ting Zhang
Procrastinator Editor


Put my earphones on, volume to the max,

Tsunami, sea, come over and swallow me.

Melody in the waves, beats in the splashing of the tide,

Drown me, drown me,

In my melody, in my ecstasy, in my cries,

Let my tears be part of the sea,

Sound waves, rise and fall,

May my heartbeat become a line,

Calm water in the night.
