let me hold fast let the wave wash over me
let me play deaf to the siren's melody
let me come back from the depths
upon the surface the air could taste so sweat
the saltwater forest untangled from my feet
weightlessly I oscillate with the ebb and flow of chemicals
I'll soak up the light of the moon
I'll soak up the light of the sun
