The Little Mermaid

I used to wonder where love lives,
I found her by the waters,
In the white foam of the seashores,
On the sands of the sea-daughters
Shining brightly, stepping harsh
Slightly under the glow of the skies stars
I saw her, pondering on her own reflection
As it glistened in the waters.
They say beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
So radiant her beauty blinded me in an instant,
The force that drew me, that stole my heart, her affliction;
The opposite of narcissus'.

She blew me her sweet kisses, 
From the edge of the waters rocks,
As I stumbled tired from war,
Hard breathed knock kneed,
The little breath I had she stole away from me,
Pain wreathed through my lungs,
In place of air my remedy were her sweet locks
Intertwined they climbed, the marine fibers,
They formed the crown and sat above her smiling face
That framed the ocean sapphires, 
Love charms hidden behind their liquid glaze.

Under their gaze, I was so far gone
Too weak to understand what was going wrong.
The heat of the flames of my captivity, 
The water spirits and their bonds
From my heart to her own tightened
Entangled in the messy knot fools call love.
The rituals and songs of the water world trapped me.
And as bail I gave my heart and its prose 
I held her in my ruff palms, through pains and chills
Closer and closer, The Little Mermaid, The Blue Rose
The water spirit though lucid, still 
Her thorns cutting deeper, deeper till 
My heart broke
