Mermaid Verse

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

Mantra (3-12-2012) by Megan Seaman

“Love love love

Love yourself whole

No matter the toll

Invest in the soul


Love love love

Love yourself clean

In spite of what’s seen

‘Cause it’s only half of what’s screened


Love love love

Love yourself more

Let it permeate each pore

Bleed through the core


Love love love

Love yourself light

Energy beaming bright

Wings taking flight… into the night…” – Megan Marie Seaman

Sickness (3-6-2012) by Megan Seaman

“Sickness has no shame

Pressure pushing the places

Behind crackled itching eyes

Breathing in and hear the

Distant banshee scream of

A wheeze through

Cavernous depths

And exhale, feel the tickling irritation

Sensation of spots sore inside

Raw and realized spaces

Skinned rubbed rough

And rosy, with deceiving blush

But fiery stinging burn comes with each touch.


Roar from lungs

Surprises the life

That rests inside this house

Of flesh and blood, bone and bile

That quakes with each rush

Of desperate air moving quickly and with strength

To force out the intruder that

Penetrated permeable walls

And has overstayed its length

As violent wind gusts enter

And at one leave each orifice

The victor will be thee

On battleground of holy body

And cure they being it must!!!” – Megan Marie Seaman

Now, I’ll Let Go (3-1-2012) by Megan Seaman

“Now, I’ll let go

I won’t wish you anymore

I won’t breathe you, see you, hear you in my soul

I won’t dream of the feel

Of your skin

Over my legs, my hips, my chest, my chin

I won’t taste your sweet saliva

Nor your salty tears

That run down your face, so fake

Just imagined happening

I won’t conjure up the pain, the hand cut

And at once healed from

Your loving touch

I won’t believe it when you speak to me

Of the mystic magic that surrounds me

And how you wanted to cast your spell

I won’t tell

You in the quiet darkness

The dreams of our brightness

And how we shine with divine lightness

I won’t want you, I won’t need you, I won’t love you

I won’t speak you, anymore.

Now, I’ll let go.” – Megan Marie Seaman

Blue (2-2-2012) by Megan Seaman

Ninigret Beach, Rhode Island

Blue calm, blue sadness

That washed over you and me

When the waves forceful and fierce

Rose and reared

Shower of power over us

Got tossed and turned

On Atlantic shores

And pulled out to sea

In the riptide


Wide was the distance between

When we drifted away

That September day

And when I came to, I looked for you

Out across the tempered ebb and flow

All alone is what I noticed

All alone except for the

Wet soaked sound of water lap

On skin, over head


Golden glow peaked

Behind blue grey show of

Pillowy puffs, thick and cottony

Just about smothering

Warning of

Rain and wind gust

Tempest to bare

In solemn ocean blue

Loneliness drifted in


Taking shape of worn driftwood

And I climbed up on it

Too tired to tread anymore

Finally accepting the dark violet

Stillness from which I came forth

Just me and that wood

Faithful friend

And I would never

Let go.


I promised in the eve

As the waves

tipped and dipped

Deep, and I road those

Peaks and valleys with speed

And intensity

Hold tight

Hold steady

Don’t let go!


Yet, the wave pushed me under

Not knowing how the plunder of water

Sent me tumbling down

Or how I came up

Nor how I was found

Eyes opened, looked around

And I saw it

That golden dream

Smiling, beaming its glow over me


Set against magnificent blue

Majestic, mighty, making me move

Kicking my legs

Shifting my arms

Energy propelling this body

To go on

And with intention and will

I swam due west

Back to the land of us.


With no hurry

No reason to rush

‘Cause now we are quiet

We are calm

We drift silently


Into the blue beyond


We are free.” – Megan Marie Seaman
