It is raining tonight and cool. It’s heading towards midnight.
My mind is replaying scenes from twenty five years ago. In the middle of the night my friend and I would get into his car and drive. Playing music LOUDLY. Madonna, Martika, Roxette. We would go to the beach or the ocean baths and take off our clothes and jump in. It was FREEZING and exhilarating. In the dark and the silence we were young and we were free.
That girl, she’s not so far away tonight. Twenty five years later, if I reach out she will take my hand and together we will jump in.
