Mermaid 2

mermaid by john william waterhouse

Beyond the shore
Two pretty eyes
That simply are to die for…
With just one look
My heart was hooked
And wrapped in rapt desire…

Some warn avoid
Alluring joy
That swims beyond one’s reach…
And yet I know
With heart aflow
How currents stir… beseech…

And so I dive
To be alive
Is to swim within love’s depths…
Transformative
That hope it gives
Provides a man new breath…

For here within
A great ocean
A siren sings and swims…
My body braves
Those tidal waves
Stirred by her face and fin…

This is no tale
That girl with tail
I know just where she wades…
Where sea foam meets
Happy heart beats
There lives a fine mermaid.
