Mermaid Verse

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

Unavailable (April 2012) by Megan Seaman

“Ring me, sing me, make your call

Anytime, any day, love me from afar

And when your “Unavailable” caller ID

Flashes on the screen

I’ll know it is you sending your tune

Through telephone waves.


And I’ll watch your “Unavailable” time and again

You wondering about me

What I’m doing and what’s happening

With you, still so far but so

Close and so real

You can feel the electricity

Pulling and making a steal for my heart


And you ring again, my mysterious friend

Your “Unavailable” identity

Beckoning me to pick up

And when I finally do

The empty space between me and you

Is all I can discern.


Words talk a thousand things and mean a million messages.

“Unavailable” may be just a caller ID

But I listen, attentively, through the space

Between my line and yours

And silent melody

Moves my heart

Soul soars.


Uplifted with a single word

“Unavailable” is what came through

A veil, a disguise of what is true

And just as consistently

That message rings in

I will answer and hear his voice

Calling me, inviting me in.” – Megan Marie Seaman
