Siren melodies

Ride upon the foaming waves

Sweeping into shore

The chained beast dances

Stamps its feet upon the beach

White sand cuts like glass

Blood coagulates

Frozen river in my veins

Eyelids flickering

As fingers cling on deadwood

--Solace!-- I am washed ashore

A/N: This was a tribute of sorts to "RahXephon" (quite possibly my favourite anime) and "The Waves" (a novel by Virginia Woolf).

"The world is saturated with sound." --Qu'on from RahXephon.
