Featured Review on this writing by LE. Berry


My siren song calls to him from afar and he ignores the arms of his lover and heeds not the warnings of his friends.

 

My siren song calls to him from afar and he looks to the sea with a stout heart and high hopes he set sail.

 

My siren song calls to him from afar and he sails through the brightest days and the darkest nights never wavering in his resolve.

 

My siren song calls to him from afar and he braves murderous storms and the wrath of might sea monsters never losing faith he would reach me.

 

My siren song calls to him from afar and he refuses to see the fate of those who came before him, the fate that he is sure to share.

 

My siren song calls to him from afar and he denies the danger until his keel shatters and his hull cracks.

 

My siren song calls to him from afar and he slips below the waves into a watery embrace and finally gives up the song.

 

My siren song calls anew and if it calls for you then your fate is already sealed.

A fine piece about the haunting and terrifying creature of the mythic sea.

Are you sure they are mythical?

I'm not so much into fantasy, but I like stories about mermaids, sirens, all kinds of sea creatures. The combination of horror, unfathomable depths of the ocean and sensuality of it attracts me. I also read that in your beautiful poem. Nice job!

The attraction to the abyss of a toxic soul is mesmerizing. You captured nicely how enchantingly horrifying that fact of reality is.

I meet this girl on a chat site that was really into sirens, and I wrote it for her.
