Well I was going down for the third time
In the deep blue sea after our ship caught
Fire mysteriously then I felt a hand taking
Mine and a voice saying everything’s gonna
Be ok, everything’s gonna be fine, I heard your
S.o.s and cries of distress, lucky for you I
Just happened to be in the neighborhood
Man in gold dangling things and white,
Man with eyes as dark as the night…
No you are not dreaming, I am for real
I am what you humans and sailors call a
Mythical siren but look at me and tell me
Do I resemble some stupid sea lion, dolphin
Or seal, I don’t think so, get real…
Soon tho’ you will wake up on the nearest
Distant shore, you’ll think it was just all a dream
From the bump on your head and from losing
Consciousness but I guess that’s for the best,
The best for both of us…
For they’ll think you’ve lost your marbles and
Call you a mad man and I’m not allowed or supposed
To interfere with the fate of humans you understand
But hence from this day forward every time you close
Your eyes I’ll be there, you will remember the feel
Of my soft silky skin and the taste of my forbidden fruits
You will recall the ecstasy you knew in the deepest
Depths and all the magic that was there all around you
Who knows maybe someday we’ll meet again, if or when
You ever return to the sea and maybe the next time
I’ll take you to my water world to forever live with me
Until then just keep our little secret and keep on
Believing, keep on believing in me…
One more kiss before I leave and return back to the sea
Just remember this day, always…
The day your imperial ship sank, you were saved…

The Mermaid Loves The Love

The Mermaid Loves The Love long poem

A dawn is approaching, an aurora is smiling, The morning star on the blue stage, With her wet eyes, drops tears that are boiling, But the dew earth gets is free of her rage, Her soul is happy but the
