Mermaid Fantasy

The sea churned heavy in the wake of rolling,ripping thunder.
As rain cascaded from the skies the vessel was pulled under.

The winds were shrieking as the sailors ran to clutch the sails.
Into the night could now be heard those far off deathly wails.

Another man went over every time the dark sea burned.
When suddenly there was a light just where the storm had turned.

Within the light is where these beautiful creatures now emerged.
Half woman and half fish they swam right where the waters surged.

The men were frightened yet enthralled by their amazing beauty.
As one by one they lost their heads forgotten was their duty.

The creatures wrapped the men within their long and tangled hair.
And slowly every sailor was drawn into their seaweed lair.

As the storm raged on the creatures took the men below
to their deep home within the tides and this much we do know.

The shipmates never were seen again-they called them lost at sea.
But the creatures say they took the men so they could set them free.
