I dreamed that you and I went for a walk on the beach on a cold night. You wanted to swim and I didn’t, so I waited on the sand for you.
You went out too far, beyond the buoy, and the sea took you. And I waited forever but you never came back. I felt a cold dead sadness in my chest when I knew you were gone forever.
But really, I knew that’s what you wanted. The sea, and not me.
