I drift, lost in a world full of mirage.
It saved me once; the beauty from the sea.
She shared her mermaid world free from façade.
Her love, the greatest gift ever received.
Uncalculated plunge into her heart.
She sang and nurtured me; my life revived.
Despite her love, truth was, we’re worlds apart.
Her livelihood was damaged by my side.
Prolonged exposure to my worldly Sun,
scales burned despite the times I turned away.
She’d sacrifice her life for me. Unjust!
My last resort, her blood I had to drain.
With tears, I slashed her throat to set her free.
I shred her fins; her young soft flesh I ate.
Her precious pearl, I vomit to the deep.
My mind is clear; the foam consumed her fate.
If she rejoiced and felt alive with me,
then she will love the afterlife to be.
