His arms warming the skin I chilled

I watched
as they sat on the beach,
his fingers untangling
the hair I knotted.

I weaved
through her toes,
slinking round her heels
to pull her closer.

I threw
wind at his face,
but he laughed
and came deeper.

I conjured
a current,
drawing her in
but he took her back.

I lapped
at her ankles,
slipping away
as he whisked her from me.

I watched
as they sat on the beach,
his arms warming
the skin I chilled.
