Ocean Girl

By Bella Dicaprio  (booksie.com)

My eyes become seashells. My hair becomes kelp. My body dissolves into damp sand as I throw myself into the ocean. I am at one with the calm beneath the cerulean depths. My eyes are open; I can see everything clearly. There is no air but my lungs feel satisfied. I am peaceful. All is serenely still.
