Destiny embracing

Image pale reflected,
of all that might have been,
in mirrored spread delightful,
seductive and serene.
The smile of disappearance
slow drifts in curdled lisp,
of watered deep remembering;
of peace in dance burlesque.
In breath of shimmered hope,
it spreads itself, revealed,
as destiny embracing;
as pain surrendered full.

Describe a body of water as seen by a teenager contemplating suicide. Do not mention death, suicide, or the teenager doing the seeing.
