Siren

Floating happily alone on my mind’s shapeless ocean
Till your mind sets sail and steers,
drawing me with your words to lovelorn rocks.
Sail beside me, sail beside me,
Hear the call,
I am here, here I am
Impatiently waiting –
your boat will breach,
and I will reach,
despite you shy away from sorrow.

Clouds like a seascape waft their potions,
I am caught like a helpless child
breathing words but my boat is leaning.
Keep a distance, keep a distance,
Ignore the singing,
I will drown, I will drown.
I am sinking
as you enfold me,
my broken bones reach
despite you said you’d keep me from sorrow.

Sea foam and its spurious memories claim me,
Mocking my buoyancy and I weaken.
It is too late now, for swimming would beat me,
do not touch me, please do not touch me.
Hear my wishes
As I drown, as I drown
I am not afraid
as I lay like a trapped oyster,
and despite you prize me apart,
my broken bones can no longer feel the sorrow.

Waves become my wings and they lift me from my tears,
I look down to flailing arms, soon at rest.
Smiles break through the storm clad sky,
relieved at such a calm sea.
My heart breaks, breaks in two,
but still it holds me buoyant.
I feel weightless and free
as my shackles disappear,
sinking deeply near the breakers,
all that is left to see is your figure holding in the sorrow.
