Salt Water by Lauren Sheperd

the ocean has an impeccable way of capturing me

i enter and never want to leave

i know i should

but that bright blue water

the feel of its power against my sensitive skin

it’s so vast; so complicated

i know so much

yet so little about it

flying high as i soar across the wild waves

diving in

unintimidated of the danger beneath

i’m in the ocean

i feel free

but the salt will always burn my eyes
