How Deep

Some people are like a summer day at the beach 
Their scent like suntan lotion and salty air 
The sweltering heat is like a welcome distraction from spring’s rain 
Moments that feel unattainable 

The texture of their skin is like that of the waves 
Dips and grooves and smoothness that show the beauty and terror of its power 
They’re just a fling 
Summer never lasts forever.
