Raindrop

Swaddled in 500 thread count sheets
White and silky smooth but Restless, nonetheless
Sweating, squirming, writhing, dreaming of
Falling
falling
falling
falling
Going anywhere but Up
Taking comfort in the gravitational pull
Feeling full of weight and yet somehow weightless
Counting the seconds until contact, 3, 2, 
Landing. . .
An ocean: salty, sweet
Swallowed whole without time to think about what that means; 
to be totally and completely consumed by something, everything
