The lady and the sea

poem by: Cierra Arrendale
Written on Jan 27, 2017

She floats through seas of violet
Followed by waves of blue
The moon reflects on the neon water of her tropical lagoon
The soft sands comfort her like an old friend
While echos rises to meet her and say her name again
Secretly she dreams of things she will never have
Two legs and feet to cary her dancing with some lad
To be one who lives on land and in the sea
A forbidden dream she whispers as she sings to me
A sad and lonely song she sings,
the lady of the sea
And how I wish to comfort her 
Although it cannot be
