Merfolk Hope


Every chance 
I swam undersea 
Arms aside  
Thighs tight  
Feet ballet 1 
Uncut hair streaming 
Hoping against hope  
Merfolk mermen mermaids swam upon me 
Saved me away to Mer kingdom  
I longed to breathe 
Mer wet salt air 
Losing hope 
Age 12...13 
Still peek for mermaids mermen merfolk 
Hope undersea
