THE MERMAID'S SONG
This is just a dream-like song that came to me about a beautiful mermaid and her human lover. Please comment nicely!
Let's play a game where you tie me up,
Right here against the rock.
Sacrifice me to the surging sea,
And feel my pounding heart.
Taste the salt on my soft red lips,
And smell the sea in my hair.
We'll just pretend for an hour or two,
And love without a care.
Afterwards you may start to feel . . .
Well, you may feel a bit sleepy and weak.
So rest in the sand while I comb my hair,
And I'll sing my sweet song while you sleep.
But never again will you open your eyes,
To gaze on the land or the sea,
Instead you will sleep in the bottomless deep.
And forever belong to me.
