Mermaid

You always thought of me as a
Mermaid
In a sea of sharks
You thought they were always looking at me
So you were protective
Then you thought I was looking at them
So you became possessive
You believed there was a part of me I hid
That longed to be free
But truly, I didn’t
You didn’t know I hated being doused in
Salt water
It never charmed me
I had tasted it so many times before
I knew better

You’d always say

You’re so beautiful
How could you want only me?

And then you’d stare off
Making some untrue comment

Leaving me in the dark
With sharks
Circling me
Intoxicated by my lonely scent

I’m sure you’ve heard

I found the love of my life

In a stream
