I met a merman in the shores of the
Deep blue sea, under the cerulean sky
While I was playing the sand with my feet,
Running behind the wave while they were chasing me
He had eyes the color of sea and
His smile, no pearl ever whiter than those.
He talked about the underwater abyss
And about the corals who changed colors
At the sight of fair maidens.
He asked me to look inside his heart
And witness it’s color change and told me
He now knew how the corals felt,
When he saw me, innocently playing the sand.
He gifted me pearls from oysters heart
Baroque pearls were they not but perfectly round
He splattered water all over me
Talked to me all day about the aqueous myths and tales
He swam from shore to shore,
I walked all around, mesmerized
By his song of mine, he asked me to join him for a swim
I floated in with my legs hoping that
Each steps that I took was secretly into his heart
I remember holding his arms and
Slipping into his shoulders with droopy eyes,
And rubbing myself against his shiny soft skin.
I woke up in the middle of the water
Swimming in the unfathomable sea alone
Well he stole my legs, and I saw him
Walking on the shore as he waved me goodbye
I had grown a tail by then, I was left here
To swim from end to end of the sea alone.
