She said she knew
I thought I did too

She lunged, in a sure lil step
Landed steady, safely at bay
Plunged I, dreaming of Yet
Crashed and bled, it swept me away

Hasty dry she raced the beach
Clutched my strength I battled the deep

What a picture she was, they matched her stride
Further I swam, invisible wasn’t I?
Sand in its face, it followed her still
You see it’s the crowd it really doesn’t think

But land stretched in her strained eyes
The end she had known, why wasn’t it near
while I swayed no more surprised
Her feet sank, their purpose unclear

They had seemed behind but the crowd was she
She was on her left, on her right ran she
Her arms limped to rescue her sides
The waves pushed, setting me free

They closed in, trampled on her
Eager to reach what the beauty seeked
My fingers brushed the waiting shore
An island of peace, a mountain of me
