I once knew a woman who lived on the sea.
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?
