Drown.


Some people you save once

twice

thrice.

 

You see them

hands flailing, screaming for help, legs kicking, desperately trying to keep their head above water.

So you throw them a lifebuoy, shout from the water’s edge to encourage them to not give up,

you might even jump in to pull them to shore

 

Notice that

though they cough sputter spit; eyes red, nose running from that near-death experience

But even before the fear tears and salt water had evaporated,

they jump headfirst back into the deep end.

 

That’s when you must realise:

that no matter how hard you try,

some people just do not want to be saved.
