The Saltwater Room


Bodies concealed with coats, gloves, and scarves
Covered head to toe
Various footprints placed gently on the sand
The waves crashing against the shore
As the seagulls parade the overcast, grey sky
The sun was hidden behind the clouds
As the cool, windy breeze
Danced in the air with all its might
Chuckling adults
Amused at the sight of giggling children
Running around without a care in the world
Exploring the cold and vast beach
And all that it holds
As I look towards the sky, I wonder
Why do so many seagulls stick around in one place?
When they have the chance to explore the entire world itself
In the air danced feelings of
Isolation, loneliness, desolation, grimness
Yet it also expressed feelings of relaxation
As soon as you enter the saltwater room
Tranquility will sweep into your body and consume your soul
Leaving you with unrestricted emotions
I feel free, free, free
