Mermaid Verse

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

It hurts so good (8-2-14 to 8-3-14) – by Megan Seaman

Something golden below the surface

Something golden below the surface

It hurts so good.

You run the sharp nail over the raw and tender surface and it hurts so good. It is the feeling of nothing; a faint scream, or some noise six billion years away. But you hear it anyway. It is the trickle of water from some cracked pipe, in some wall, on some floor, in some building, in some city, in some country, on some continent, and it leaks and flows in the darkness. But you hear it anyway. It is the glimmer, shining, thirty-six thousand feet below the sea, where Spanish dancing cucumbers can’t even survive. But you see it anyway. It is the honeyed smell of spring, some one hundred and seventy-nine days after the first leaf falls on autumn’s ground. But you smell it anyway. It is the flavor of the pomegranate in the dark red depths of the wine that grew from the grapes nourished by the land, which flourished an orchard of Persephone’s fruits nine thousand years ago. But you taste it anyway. It is the aching feeling under three (thousand) layers of skin, wanting to be exposed and touched, wanting to be acknowledge for the sensation it brings. But you feel it anyway. And though it is tender and raw under the piercing metal,

It hurts so good.

“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

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
