Landing on water

She said Boy, you couldn't land on water if you fell off a boat! He responded... The wind created by the flutter of your eyelashes makes men believe they can spread their masts and set sail in the desert. As I stepped back to observe your beauty, I fell overboard, and landed on dry reality. As a tear rolled down the side of her cheek, I knew this lucky sailor had landed on water.
