Her Soul Returns


I swam today.

First time since my surgery.

When my feet touched the sand, joy sparked in my heart.

I ran all the way into the water, dived under, and when I came up, that joy flared and pumped through my veins like a drug.

I couldn’t stop smiling. I whispered a joyful “hello!” to the choppy water. I laughed, properly laughed, for the first time in too long.

And as I looked out at the horizon, I saw the waters part. Out of the depths, something that looked like white fire rose up.

The water regained normality, and the white fire rushed towards me.

It was a piece of my soul, and when it shot into my chest to nestle by my heart, I knew.

I’m back.
