The Maiden of the Sea
~*The one and the other
Deep and dangerous secrets
a fair lady's heart can keep
buried deep within her soul,
she alone has a wisdom like no other.
A wisdom of the world
and all its goings on.
How one can never just be as they wish
or think treacherous thoughts
as natural as breathing
About one and the other.
Deep longings she stills in her hands,
she holds in them a secret.
Her loving heart strives to be known
to love freely whom she may choose.
To have the impossible dream,
for she loathes her stigmatic life.
As she clutches the one man's back in the dark
she thinks of the other,
whom she loves just as deeply
If the darkness will allow her to feel this love
for one and another at once.
Deep love is in her very core,
as deep as the sundering ocean
evermore flowing anew on distand shores
like her agony that courses
through her very veins.
She crys softly tears of the sea
and hope they will lull her
into the accepting arms of dreams
where she can openly love,
as love should be loved.
The one and the other shining in her deep eyes.
Ah! but what awaits the lady
but scorn and abandoment
from all that which she hold true?
Alas! The fair maiden
she cannot choose
the one or the other.
So she longs for evermore,
yet, no, for she pines no more.
For the maiden, lady devine
departed to the sea with her deep heart
of lonley secrets.
Ever can you hear her cries on stormy days.
"Lovely dark sea, take my heart!"
Her clear voice among the whitecaps lifts.
"I choose you as my beholder!"
No more will she want and wane,
for the water made her his lover.
And lost are the one and the other
whom both sought to win the heart
of which both had already won.
Clear is the darkling night and calm are the waves
and the voice of the sea maiden...
For she never will speak of her hopeless love
for the one and the other
