Mermaid Verse

music flows from lips and as words meet sound bound and found me, your eyes wide open, soul sprightly greeting thee….

Set them Fire (8-9-2011) by Megan Marie Seaman

Burlington, VT

Felt sad for days

In a violet blue haze

Of where and why and when?

What are you doing?

Who are you fooling?

Turning away from what’s happening

Feel the tickling irritation

That burgeoning sensation

The sickly sign of unrest

Wishing it was calling

Hoping you were falling

Into some fateful quest

‘Cause you’re not sure of this path you’re strolling

Yet, you know where you’re going

The dawn is still an hour beyond

With unsteady tracking

Moving forward on the road that is cracking

And crumbling ‘til it’s gone

But the sun, it rises

With burnt sienna surprises

And firey red glow

It smiles it’s blinding face

Beams down on the open space

For which you used to know

Sensing its burning

Realizing this life that you’re learning

Becoming still with ambiguity

Lungs fill with air

Letting go without care

Now flowing with brilliant uncertainty

Now going with enlightening insanity

Now mowing the weeds of conformity

Now throwing off blankets of hypocrisy

Now towing the ruins of Christianity

Now stowing tools of complacency

Now rowing the boat out on that sea

Now opening the gates to set them free

Go now sorrow

Go now doubt

Go now suffering

Go now go” – Megan M. Seaman
