Nereid

October 19, 2011
The roaring waves swallowed me

Dragging me under into the black sea

Drowning me, stealing air from my lungs

And just as I was about to shut my eyes

Just as I saw Death approaching me

She came

She was not human, nor was she a mermaid

Her eyes were bright like sunken treasures

Her movements were as fluid as the water itself

And she was more beautiful than the sea’s pearls

When her lips touched mine, I could’ve swore I was dreaming

She breathed air into my lungs and dragged me to shore

Then, she left, never again to be seen
