Ode To A Mermaid Friend

A new friend who helped me in getting my bearings in the new place I have in SL and encourages me to form a poetry group there is a mermaid.  We were talking about the funny quips she has on her profile and somehow that evolved into  me saying that I bet I could write a poem around these.  … And umm so,.. I did.

Lazy Daze -Two Worlds Merged

Ode To A Mermaid Friend
by Michael Romani

The ocean holds its depths
Deeper than she's wept
Wrecked on a stormy rock
In legends sailors talk

A siren's call to destiny
Heard as if in mystery
As we drown our souls
Losing our fading control

Like a drowning man
Who's done the best he can
To find up from down
And ends with the jester's crown

Spied combing her long hair
More dark than ever fair
She dreams of the ocean
With every drop of emotion

That she spares us from
In her watery kingdom
Turning to mortal at night
But mystical by first light

Words fall becoming inspired
By the fancy of dreams desired
Fallen as Ode to A Mermaid
Paid full like the gold of a dragon's fade

Fading into the mist of magic
Tales whispered are often tragic
Music plays tempting mortal souls
Tempted by dejavu out of control

All of the lost become mer men
Who have become their sin
Answering  her call of eternity
Mahogany given fades into mystery

The opinions of shrimp mean nothing
Just rattled chains of that something
That must naturally become food
Depending on her celestial mood
