Mermaid Verse

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

I Am the Poet (July 29, 2013) by Megan Seaman

I am the poet, not the songwriter

Weaving words in perfect pattern

Like soft threads, golden and red

I sew the suit you wear.

 

You are the songwriter, not the poet

Silvery sounds are your guide

Harnessing hums of traveling tunes

You amuse me with your magic moods.

 

I am the poet, not the songwriter

Picking precisely each phrase

Crazed with analytic eye

Speaking how it feels inside.

 

You are the songwriter, not the poet

Like a dance routine or dramatic scene

Disguised calculation of emotional relation

You play the poems that arise.

 

Enticing player with sweet-sounding whine

Tell me your lies and I’ll listen

Very closely to each piece of fiction

Oh, promise you’ll lie.

‘cause what’s the use of truth

in this production put forth

skilled rendition of unvarnished life.

 

But, I am the poet, not the songwriter

With a wish he will listen to my bit of diction

And feel the warm blood that

Melts the ice.

 

And, you are the songwriter, not the poet

Blind to the rhyme, yet heedful to the tone

The music that opens what hides

Behind those sleepy blue eyes.

“Sucre Sucre” – Megan M. Seaman 11-16-2011

“Sugar sugar

Sucre sucre

Sweet like honey

Honey bunny

Caramel coated

Hot flowing

Sweet crème

Like silk

No like satin

Smooth waves

Of cool bliss

Transition

Switch and twist

Under and over

Bare skin

Naked

Exposed

Coated caramel

Bunny honey

More honey

Like sweet

Sucre sucre

Sugar sugar

Sucre sucre

Sweet like honey

Honey bunny

Caramel coated

Hot flowing

sweet crème

Like liquid

No like lava

Engulfing waves

Of hot matter

Transform

Move and make

Around and over

Land that quakes

Rattles and cracks

Exposed

Coated caramel

Bunny honey

More honey

Like sweet

Sucre sucre

Sugar sugar

Sucre sucre

Sweet like honey

Honey bunny

Caramel coated

Hot flowing

Sweet crème

Like poetry

No like song

Penetrating waves

Of mellifluous sound

Transcend

Shimmer and shake

Into and over

Hearts that break

Love and hate

Exposed

Coated caramel

Bunny honey

More honey

Like sweet

Sucre sucre

Like sweet

Sucre sucre” – Megan M. Seaman
