I’ve got another poem out today over on Spun Stardust!
A grimoire of secrets
Book of a mermaid’s dreams
Written out in seafoam on pages
Rippled and faded with the force of the tides
Pulling you under into her world
Where you will drown and she will not
Understand why you’ve stopped
Why you aren’t any fun
Why you can’t be her playmate
Down in the deep where she lives
And loves and never dies.
