a piece of my writing

by Rayla

My lips connected with his and I could feel a rush of energy pulse through my body. The world was spinning, I held onto him tighter. I could feel him finally give in to me, as if he was prepared to forever say yes to me. And then I thought “wait, I’ve been here before.” Him pushed up against the wall, my hand down his pants, and a party continuing without us. I was in college the first time it happened. No one thought it would turn into anything, a love that would engulf us like a wave, almost drowning. It happened fast, but naturally. We just knew.

And here I was again, jumping back into that ocean not realizing the consequences. Not realizing that it’s so easy for me to drown.
