I've been having this repeating dream where I'm hopelessly watching a faceless body tread in a swimming pool that is a touch too small for him. He sinks under and I consider stepping in for a moment.
I dip my foot in to test the water.
The the pool is a flush peach tone and everything is well lit from within.
I watch him as he comfortably holds his breath underwater. I can't explain how I can see this, for I never actually make it into the pool.
Then, out of the sky comes a massive net to scoop him up. I watch him lift up into the air, far too fast for me to reach out and grab him.
He screams for my help, and I jump as high as I can, but not nearly high enough.
As I yell out "I'm trying my best", I fall into the pool, sink to the bottom, and can't move.
