FREE WRITING

Belonging
and breath
saltwater memories
waves kissing my ankles

of a childhood in the sand
part of what i didn't recognize as
an hourglass
frigid is best
and frigid it was
until it became a new home

rays of sun skimming the surface
dancing to its own tune
i didn't understand it
i wasn't supposed to
and that's what made it so lovely

dive deep
hands outstretched to the
great beyond
colder and colder and
take me further, current
'till my lungs burn
and my eyes
c l o u d
and i close my fist around the shell

twisting,
t

        i
            s
                t
                    i
                        n
                            g,
stretching,
breaking the surface tension
g a s p
and i can breathe once more
brown hair shining copper
in the waves
and i become
a part of the sea
another drop
in a network of sea spray
throat tanging
heart racing
lashes freezing
soul laughing
and we are one
I would love some feedback on this if someone is willing to give it. This was a little different from my usual style, but I really liked writing it. <3

    'and we are one'
    That just about sums it up!
    I love this! Disjointed/descriptive sentences fit this topic so well!
    Keep on! God bless!
