Mermaid’s Tale

I met this guy on the shore,
He was cool, funny
and something more.
Bright ocean blue eyes
and a strong jawline,
With a height, almost fine.

Golden hair, perfect lips,
He was roaming
around the ships.
Due to shore’s haze
My whole body shuddered
under his gaze.

He motioned towards me
and opened his arms,
For the first time,
I really felt protected,
safe and warm.

He stayed for few days
and I was all his,
Ocean was warning me,
through the fizz.

I started to believe in love
He gifted me a pair of dove.
He believed in dreams,
so I gave him a dream catcher,
Was not aware,
he was a snatcher.

During one night,
we were sitting on the rock,
This time,
Instead of me he was staring at the clock.
I knew a mermaid
was not allowed to fall
But this love
really was moon’s call.

Ripping ocean’s lap,
He left with his ship,
And I still miss him
with every flip.

  1. When I was a kid physically ( mentally I still am, this helps forget the pains early), I wanted a pet shark. Why? To eat the mermaid who cajoled me to the ocean promising to make me learn swim and then left me when I was in the middle of it.

    Oh! Some pains are given by the sailors, some by the mermaids. I have, with the passing of time, learned to let go. Let the time be the best judge.

    Masterfully written, beautifully imagined, painfully expressed. Kudos.

  3. Thanks for sharing .Sometimes all that glitter is not gold. The guy might not be for you.
    You had this experience to receive a double reward from God.All you have to do is to believe and open your eyes and mind to receive.Do not dwell in the past.You have finished with the past, so move to the future.In every disappointment there is a blessing..

  4. Sad but beautifully expressed. I hope she isn’t lamenting over the ship that has left the shore. Next time perhaps she will fall in love with a lighthouse! Atleast that will stay put for as long as she wants. πŸ™‚
