A little Mermaid

I once knew a woman who lived on the sea.

And I,

with all of my curiosity

went out to meet her.

And to this day I cannot make you see

how it is this water creature came to be.

But I will show you something else.

Something deep within myself.

And if you look closely; hold no fear

For within my soul, are mermaids here.

So away from my curious, nightly venture~

Do sirens sing when they are no longer with you?
