What Do You See?

You Lie

You want me
to lie down with you
in that watery grave.
but you lie to me of
such voluptuary,
with naked invitation
and I am so tempted
save for the deafness of steel,
this wall between your song
and my uncertainty.
For now
I’m content to savour your gifts
and I shall dream of you more,
tonight.

  9. Hopefully after dreaming one wakes to a pleasant reality.
    Some Merfolk have been known to ‘transform’ after they have lured their prey…
