She stood beside the ocean ready to jump in
Her lover called behind her,
“But, you don’t know how to swim.”
She leapt from the rocks high into the air,
Her lover staring in disbelief
Ready to cry out in despair.
Her body strikes the water with perfect grace and form,
The lover almost faints not watching what happens next,
She moves slowly with the ocean, swimming back towards shore.
His eyes are teary as he confesses,
“I thought you were going to die.”
She turns to him in her reply, “Silly boy, I’ve been taking lessons.”
