A Mermaid Story

19 Sep

Welcome To My World

Between The Ebbs and Flows

Of Oceans Eternal Tides

In The Blinking

Of The Moonbeams Smile

I Waited Upon the Shores

For My Dream to Rise

From Beneath

The Oceans Waves

From Her Briny Home

In The Depths

Of Her Waters

Running Deep

In The Moonlight

I Sat Upon the Shore

And Fell Into a Reverie

Of My Mermaids Love

A Night like This

So Long Ago

I Sat Beneath the Stars

That Sparkled Like Diamonds

Glistening On Oceans Waves

And A Moon That Illuminated

The Salty Crests

Breaking upon the Shores

As If in a Rush

To Deliver You

Into My Waiting Heart

I Saw You From Afar

Dancing Upon the Waves

Your Song Entrancing

To My Soul

As Your Laughter

Carried Across the Winds

And Broke Upon My Ears

In A Lovers Tease

Your Long Golden Hair

Billowed and Glistened

As You Came Closer

To My Heart

      Agree Melanie, the mystical world of the sea has always entranced men,
      Mermaids and Sirens who lure the sailors to their death with their songs.

    This is lovely and romantic, Ian, with a soothing feel to it. Then again, the ocean always offers that to us, doesn’t it? Have a wonderful Monday and week!

      Thanks Lauren, agree that the ocean does have a calming effect on the emotions, probably why it is mentioned in so many romantic story’s.
      It has a mystical enchantment about it.
      Best wishes for a lovely week.

      Hi Robin, yes there is some sensuality in those words, must have been having one of my old man’s moments when I wrote that, hehe.
      Regards.

      Not often David, three marriages and two divorces, is not a good track record for this Romantic poet.
      Cheers.

        in French, we say: jamais 2 sans 3! = never 2 without 3! – meaning that after 2 failures, the 3rd time is the right(good) one… 🙂

        seriously speakin’: a separation(divorce) is always considered to be a “failure” for both partners, but at the same time, it never occurs because of one partner’s fault only…

          Hi Melanie, I understand what you are saying, and this time around has been no mistake, however one is still plagued by memory’s and self recriminations, which there really is no need for.
          Kindest regards.
