A Mermaid Encounter

I went for a swim early one summer morning in the ocean
The waves were rough, crashing with powerful motion
As I dove into the waves, I lost my balance and hit my head
I choked on salt water, couldn’t catch my breath as I bled

I struggled with the current, being pulled out as I sank
Deeper under the water, fighting as more salt water I drank
I knew then I was passing out and was starting to drown
No one is out here, I hope someone sees me, comes around

I then opened my eyes and saw a beautiful woman with long glistening hair
She had an angelic face, a perfect physique and glittery blue fins she did wear
She warmly smiled as she grabbed my hands and pulled me into an embrace
She then swam me to shore and quickly left me on the beach in a safe place

A lifeguard came running to my rescue and started to press on my chest
I came to while coughing out salt water, feeling exhausted, needing to rest
I asked if he saw the beautiful mermaid on the beach who rescued me today
The lifeguard laughed and said no, and that my delirium will soon go away
