Deep Waters

I am in the water, a large lake.
I can see the other side which is a place I know as home- a place that is familiar but not really filled with emotional connection or love.
I am up to my waist in the water and begin to run.
I am mad or hurt, a lover has left me.
I start to run in the direction of home and am surprised to realize I am running on top of the water. It is patchy tourquoise and emerald blue.
I see the water getting deeper because it has turned into solid dark blue and I start to dive in head first.
I move in like a mermaid with a slight arch in my back and I feel my neck as my head is pushed back from the impact of water currents with the velocity of my body.
