a mermaid's afterlife

Cover Image

I have grown restless in this body
Hidden from the sun
I have grown cold and anxious
As my sweet dreams came undone
My stiff bones longed to fidget
In my claustrophobic coffin
My tongue dreamed of tasting the salt
Of the sea that I was locked in
But still, I have been patient
As I watched the waves above
I slowly decayed as I waited
To forget the Ocean’s love
