A mermaid who goes against her nature

So crystal clear her saltwater tears

dripping down one by one

One for her hopes

The other for her dreams

Now bleak and unforgiving

forgotten long ago.

All alone

as she always is

No one to rely on

no one but the wide stream of saltwater tears

Now and again

the full moon rises

Her throat burns and aches

and the song is once again free.

So alluring and compelling

Even the strongest can't deny

They must answer the call

they trip and fall

Never to re-emerge from the saltwater tears

Nothing but song

Compelling, beautiful, irresistible

waving through the air

On high notes of serenity

She longs for the song of the siren to end

She can't stand another death

but lo-

the voice stills

and thundering silence echoes.

Another has answered.

She closes her eyes

Saltwater tears fall.
