Witch Baby

Rookie (The Universe)

The Mermaid


A midnight swim
In the lonely hours of night
The moon casting a pale smile
In the velvet quite of dark

The cool blue pool
Throwing shadows on my skin
His eyes, like sea glass, close slowly
Pearls melted over his bones

A ocean tucked away
In a backyard of L.A.
It's the taste of chlorine that lingers
Though I can imagine the salt of forgotten beaches

A mermaid swimming in the depths of my soul
Though, supposedly, I am to old for such dreams
The reflections on the water
Break with each ripple my tears make

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
