Mermaid - Poem by Lila Pearl

In the dawn
I was a mermaid
I saw beauty and peace
inside the calm dark muddy water

I grew and walked the land
Where I met a man
He saw mystique in my
water colored eyes

that only drowned him
in his own lies
When my beauty faded
he threw me back
to where I came

My mystery
was unvailed
and to the sharks
he gave

This new water
was cold and unfamiliar

To land my flippers
adapted again

Many men saw my pain
and beauty
and drew the light from me
to feed the ego within

New waters I am in search of again
but when I did
I soiled it
by bringing the world
I now knew with me

The salt stung my eyes
eyes that no longer
were made to see the truth

And I am on my search again
for calm dark muddy waters
that warmed my tail fins
