Mermaid Verse

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

Now I’m Clean (7-8-2011) by Megan Seaman

“White hard honeycomb

Underneath my feet

While solid blocks surround me

 

My blue heaven, overhead, Cupid hovering

Just above the wall I built

To hide my skin

 

Bare and shriveled

It is now clean and hairless

Pink and perfect, perfectly fragile

 

And ready to split

Cold and wet

I cried out in my cell,

 

“I need the one

I could never have

To prove that he’s all I’ve got.”

 

And then some screaming

Screeching voice sounded

And the white walls started to shake

 

Something was on the other side

Quaking breaking

The perfect structure that was falling

 

I scrambled now

In my fragile skin

Not ready for the answer

 

Looking for my towel

And as the blocks came down

I saw a figure

 

Bare, pink

Shriveled, perfect

I began to take the blocks down too.” – Megan Marie Seaman
