Song of the Lonely Siren

Can you see me or not, for I am Lost
I only feel salt and quick burning sting
Can you follow me into the ocean
I know you are used to light, not the dark
And I know your hands hold fire, not this cold
Please come, for this toiled storm is my home
 
It’s with a heavy heart I label home
For it was much too long I was lost
I fought for fire, to rid myself of cold
No matter the heat my skin still would sting
I am only a creature of the dark
I hang my hat only in the ocean
 
The sweet siren song of the lost ocean
Long since called me from my broken home
That was when I was still scared of the dark
I was pulled into the night so lost
The only words cast upon me would sting
I yearned to nest in the fire, not cold
 
Ridicule rained down on my heart so cold
The girl with the eyes that sprayed like the ocean
I still don’t understand why my tears sting
Perhaps they were trying to lead me home
Scorched by my foes my eyes knew they were lost
They longed for me to find peace in the dark

It’s hard for you to see me in this dark
I see your lips turn blue and fingers cold
I am hoping that you are also lost
And you can find a home in my ocean
My dearest, do you already know your home?
My, how such a revelation would sting
 
It is fine, dear, I am used to the sting
You know my heart lies only in the dark
I have stolen you from your firey home
I hoped that, like me, your heart was too cold
I was wrong, you are now drowning in my ocean
I have become the reason you are lost
 
Lovers- don’t chase tempests into the cold
I just longed for a friend in this ocean
I have become the reason you are lost
