Prompt: Quote Interpretation (interpret the following, taken from the last stanza of T.S. Eliot's poem The Love Song of J. Alfred Profrock, however you like):

We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed in seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.

Dreamer;Leah Clearwater;G
Waist deep in the cold, salty Pacific waters, waves swaying them slightly. She screams in delight as he takes powerful steps towards her while she splashes at him and he picks her up in his arms and tosses her as far as she can. It is enough and she is dunked into the water, a wave crashing onto her head. She emerges, sputtering, trying to be angry, but laughing instead. Sea weed entangles around her and she allows it to flow around her hands as she drags them back forth, front and back, in her efforts to get to him. Her track runner's legs do help a bit against the current rushing back out to the mass of blue and gray before them. She laughs as he takes her in his arms and she wraps her own around his neck, sea weed slapping against his back. His forehead pressed to her's he almost says, "I love you." But her alarm clock rings and Leah wakes up, the ocean's salty water leaking from her eyes, draining the sea from her dreams, from her memories.
