just until my skin turns brown, then i'm going home
when i was a toddler, i went to the beach with my parents. they took me a little ways into the water, and a current came that almost swept me and mama away. of course i don't remember, but mama said she was terrified. she lost contact with me for a second and in that second lost her world.
the ocean has a way with me. of sweeping me in and under. of swallowing me.
robert and i are off to the coast for a long weekend in the sun. i plan to lose myself in the water's pull. not entirely different from when i was a child and got swept away. because sometimes, being swept away is just what i need.
