My Sinking Heart

Diary entries set by the point of view of a young girl who falls in love with a boy. They are aboard the titanic right before it sinks. Can she save Sam or will he make the ultimate sacrifice.

April 13 1912

I've enjoyed my voyage on the great titanic. I've enjoyed every aspect of it. My room is fairly spacious and I get only the highest quality meals every night.

About 1 week ago I met the most handsome boy, we've been meeting up for a while now. His eyes sparkled just like the deep blue ocean surrounding us. His hair is a light blonde color it falls just above his eyes. He's quite the charmer, and I have a slight suspicion that he may have fallen for me, just as I have him. I don't have a clue what he sees in me. My thin brown hair and my green eyes may as well be a pile of old undergarments. It's absolutely dreadful!

April 14 1912

I have the most exciting news! I'm meeting up with the boy I told you about tonight, I think I recall him telling me his name was Sam. I've already picked out a stunning yellow dress, I think he'll absolutely adore it, or at least I hope he will.

I proceeded down the steps towards where we arranged to meet. I couldn't hold back how ecstatic I was!

I waited for a few minutes and could not see Sam anywhere, I was worried and quite frankly a bit aggravated by the whole situation. Then when all hope was lost he appeared from behind me and gave me quite the surprise.

He turned to me his eyes gleaming with positivity. That was something I really admired about him, how happy he always seemed. He caresses my cheek with his soft hands and looked deeply into my eyes.

A loud noise echoed through the halls, the deck slid to one side. I tripped but Sam grabbed my arm before I could fall. He pulled me towards him, and for the first time he had a frightened look in his eyes instead of his usual positive look. He pulled me up the stairs. I was breathing hard and my legs were wobbly, I was confused and scared. Sam kept glancing back to see if I was alright. I wasn't but I wanted to look strong I didn't want to be seen as a weak little girl.

We continued down the never ending hallways, until we finally made it to 3rd deck. Boats were lined up against the side of the ship, women and children proceeded to board the orange inflatables. I was confused, where were the men. I looked at Sam then realized what was happening. I opened my mouth to object, but before I could say a word, our lips met, my first kiss. Tears streamed down my face. He looked at me. "I love you, and that's why I have to let you go"... Sam whispered, as he pushed me into the boat. I reached for his hand but it was too late. The boat dropped into the icy water. I saw him look at me then walk away tears welling up in his eyes.

I watched the titanic break apart that night, just like my heart. "I will never forget you Sam..."I whispered as the ship became fully submerged in the water... "never..."
