Mermaid’s Dream - Tracy R.Cardinet2010©Cal USA

Suspended in sea’s silken slumber
Great Poseidon at the helm
She dreams of romance, magic, wonder
A mermaid’s secret realm
.
Seashells, starfish, anemones
All actors in her play
She hasn’t any enemies
In sleep, she whiles away
.
He seeks her out, the captain
So handsome, strong and kind
Above her, it all happens
At least, there, in her mind
.
She dreams the dream of having limbs
As in fairytale of yore
From the depths, she walks to him
Bound to the sea no more
.
Then time and space, the gods erase
Two lovers, now, together
Cling to the other’s sweet embrace
Their love goes on forever
.
Until, that is, the moon does wane
It dims the veil between them
Desperately, but all in vain
Her legs give way, and then
.
So gently, he does carry her
Back to her ocean home
Never can he marry her
The truth of this sad poem
.
Never free to love another
Never free to marry
Always, they will love each other
In both their hearts they’ll carry
.
The headiness and burden of
Love’s contradictive state
He navigates, by stars above
From dreams, she’ll never wake
.
Just as the sea is to the shore
Their kinship always bittersweet
The lasting ache of evermore
She repositions, in her sleep
.
