I wrote this but don't feel especially like submitting it as anything, so I thought I'll just stick it here
I rest my foot on the surface of the water, feeling the surface tension below the sole of my shoe. For a moment, it's easy to believe that I could shift my weight and remain above sea level, balancing on the glassy reflection of the sky. That I could walk to the other side and be with her again, as easy as placing one foot in front of the other. Instead I retract my sneaker and tuck that feeling of possibility away in a corner of my mind, storing it for the next time I need to believe in the impossible.
