the return to the water.

the sun came down to me today. i want to be wrapped around in warm waters, submerged with my eyes looking towards the surface. somewhere balanced between the mucky soil and the air we breathe, swims a girl. with her arms stretched out to her side, fingers relaxed, and limp, not trying. dragging her feet as if she were walking. hair alive like the creatures on the reef. i watched the current push it around. i watched as she swam in place. i watched as she began to tread water. this is hello. this is goodbye. i'm scared. i'm treading water.
