The sky is mirky blue tonight,
the stars are bright yellow.
A few strands of white whisp across this blanket of beauty I'm entangled in.
It's midnight, the lake is placid and calm.
The sky reflects onto the water almost perfectly.
I'm sitting on the dock, wrapped in a towel.
My swimsuit is blue and orange but still visible in the dark night.
I love the nighttime;
so calm, quiet, peaceful.
My friends are at the campfire,
no one seems to notice my lack of presence.
But even though I'm alone, I'm not lonely.
Now the water that rushes against my body,
is my companion.
