On Canvas Wings I Fly
by restlessd

Gliding briskly, atop white capped waves,
Seemingly floating through the sky.
The cool refreshment of the constant spray.
On canvas wings I fly.

I sail away from the world,
Into the endless sea.
This is where the past is forgotten
And the day begins for me.

I leave the madness far behind,
No sound but a sea gulls cry.
With the wind pushing me onward;
On canvas wings I fly.

The Mermaids Tale
by restlessd

This story’s told from days long gone.
Of the beautiful mermaids and their song
Unlike the tales of vivid dreams
And treacherous luring with wicked schemes.

The lovely girls must find a way
To trick the boys so they’d stay away.
For they came here with one true intent
To steal their hearts without their consent.

This may sound like loves one true goal
In reality future hopes is what they stole.
The falsehood offered up love and a happy life
This was only a silkscreen to the future strife.

They only knew this from one who had escaped
She was able to return, the truth undraped.
Her story told for them all to know
No other maiden would err and go.

From that time then to this day now
When the boys sailed by the maids avow
To fool the boys so they would stay away,
So the maidens would not dare to stray.

They would sing their songs in lovely voice
The sailors slept, they had no choice.
The ship sailed on, the boys did snore.
They passed on by never seeing the shore.

There is a lesson here somewhere.
You can figure it out if you really care.
Or perhaps this is just an old folktale
You decide, truth will always prevail

Wayward Son
by restlessd

Contemplation now
is his daily exercise
Wondering where his life was spent
Seeing out of hooded eyes.

Did he do enough
In his time upon this earth
To leave a small impression
Of what his life was worth?

As the twilight of his days
Darkens into the night
Will he be remembered
As one who brought some light?

Or will he be forgotten
As just another one,
Who was born and then who died?
Just another wayward son.
