Salt Water

Sand squished under my toes as I walked into the water.

It was cold, but that was expected.

It's always cold- I'm always cold.

It was something about the waves.

How all that salt got them stirred up that the only thing they could do was fall.

Like us.

How I devoured you and your salt so much that now the waves take me under too.

How all your salt got me stirred up that the only thing I could do was collapse.

Collapse on the shower floor.

Collapse in my bed.

But never in your arms.

I'm waist deep now and I can see the wave starting to peak.

So, I dive.

Maybe too deep.

I hear them yell for me to come back to shore.

But I got so used to drowning

That water is all I am anymore.
