Riding My Unicorn

I ride my unicorn along a rocky shore
As the full moon glistens on the waves
A beauty in the distance catches my eye
She is basking in the moons reflective glow

As the full moon glistens on the waves
I am completely mesmorized 
She is basking in the moons reflective glow
I am drawn to be so much nearer to her

I am completely mesmorized
Her there naked laying on that rock
I am drawn to be so much nearer to her
As I look I notice her tail

Her there naked laying on that rock
A temptation I can hardly resist
As I look I notice her tail
She beckons me to give her a kiss

A temptation I can hardly resist
I see the moonlight in her eyes
She beckons me to give her a kiss
I leap from the unicorn to be in her arms

I see the moonlight in her eyes
Sometimes beauty isn't what it seems
I leap from my unicorn to be in her arms
Then I watch as she is stabbed through the heart

Sometimes beauty isn't what it seems
I am enchanted by her siren call
Then I watch as she is stabbed through the heart
The unicorn's horn hits it's mark

I was enchanted by her siren call
Now I'm appalled by what I see
The unicorn's horn hit it's mark
A scaled monster lays dead on a rock

Now I'm appalled by what I see
How could I ever have been so blind
A scaled monster lays dead on a rock
Blood trickles from the unicorn's horn

How could I ever have been so blind
A beauty in the distance caught my eye
Blood trickles from the unicorn's horn
I ride my unicorn along a rocky shore

    Stunning lines. I've met some friends of old where the circumstances were very similar. Sad. This was wonderfully written!

    Very interesting, Rick. Unicorns and mermaids are often though of very serene and majestic creatures... but in this I see the darker side of them. Temptation can be a "killer" it seems...

    Yes it can! Take care Tim.

    I oft' wonder about the stuff of mythology and living here in Cyprus there is a lot of it about. Your tale of Unicorns & Sirens is great stuff. I shall have to look into trying a pantoum at some date. I have noted it on my to-do list. Great stuff Richard Thank you for sharing. God Bless. Dave.

    Very nice, Richard! Pantoums are rather complicated to create, but you suceeded flawlessly! Good luck in the contest... Terry (PS thank you for all your kind comments... much appreciated... by the way, though not a mailman, I am a male man...)
