Sea Sorceress

Oh well and the first time I ever saw you
an Ocean of emotions came crashing down
upon me it was magic by the full moon and
waves off the velveteen sea
You took me by the hand and led me into
the deep somewhere around the Octopuses’
web and the Mermaids liar more than 21,000
leagues under the sea but I was not scared
you took me into your arms and kissed me full
of intoxicating air now I think I’m falling in love
I must be under your spell but oh well what the
hell now who cares about the world above
Could this be Atlantis or the lost Garden of Eden
I don’t know but I you’re the sound of your beautiful
voice has me in a trance a full and real dream like
romance, a state of enchanted ecstasy now would
you wanna go back if you were me well I don’t wanna
go back no I wanna stay here with you forever now
who cares, who cares about the world above
But then the next thing I knew the sun was shining
down upon me and the white sands well it must of just
been a dream but it couldn’t of been a dream because
I see here lying next to me a pearl necklace sparkling
iridescently oh Sea Witch why did you forsake me
I cry out I love you come back, come back as I cross
the sea shore and the light of day turns into night
of starless black a voice arose from the deep and said
you will see me again someday and the next time my
arms will keep you and never let you go again
now I only live for that day when we will come to swim
once again together forever
…Spending every day and every night
waiting and watching desperately
walking along the waves of velveteen
drowning in my misery, lost without you
‘cuz now I only live to be one with you
for eternity under the sea…
