We ran into the freezing northern californian ocean water without a second thought
the chill ran down my spine, a spasm of being alive
I ran into the sea green waves, dived into the frothy soup, rolled into the sand holding your warm hand
we were in paradise, the sun shining timidly on our skin
salty kisses, sandy shorts sliding in the surf
not a person in sight
this is paradise,
We are young and foolish and scared, but here in the crashing sound of waves, the calls of gulls, we just are together, were are just alive.
