A Mermaid

written by: Maroulla Radisavic


My love is a mermaid…
I’m a poet and I sing my dreams and my pains
Girls love me
But I love a mermaid
I will give her my heart that is broken in two
to make earrings out of my heart's pieces
My mermaid, my secret love
Comes and goes in the deep oceans
But her image follows me wherever I go
I will celebrate
Life and love
And the flavors of basil
I wish she could smell…
But my love is a mermaid
Her long hair covers her breasts
And her lips sing my dreams and my pains
My love is a mermaid and a faraway dream
And I wish I drowned in her ocean kingdom
I wish I drowned in her immortal water
My love is a mermaid
In the ocean of love
