I run through this forest
The light through the trees
Keeps my eyes seeing in front of me
My mouth sings what my heart feels
Not knowing what, who’s ears
Are listening to
My wisdom, my apparent judgment
My mask hides me
In my advisement
Keep talking about it
Each word fills with new meaning
The forests creatures
What am I to do now?
These words were not meant for them
Where is this forest princess?
Where is her heart’s avail?
My sword trembles at a sound
My feet slide as I listen
The trees move and sway
As they make a path for these witches
These voices these many songs
They are unlike any I’ve heard
Their beauty and terror
Come from deep within they’re words
They twist the air and reflect the Captain
Such gloom and despair, such lonely compassion
These voices many are not so
For a beautiful, only goddess is dancing to and fro
Singing such sad
Songs to the forest and all within it
The creatures their ears turn upward and listen
My hand resting on hilt of my blade
My eyes open as my mouth is dismayed
My heart is wary but curious the same
What power rests in such a beautiful grave?
My mother told me of such enchanting mistresses
There eyes hold a fire and there hearts are in stitches
They feast on the life of men like me
They feast on our kindness, our passion, our glee
Their hands are smooth and swift
Their bodies are curvaceous, they lift
And float above your own
Sooner and sooner turning it
But these boys and these sirens
They see not the rocks and the waves
They’re ships are too sturdy
Their crews are too brave
I can fix this, I can change this
I have the answer to this too.
But the sirens push them forward
Till they’re fifty under the blue.
She turns and stares and smiles at me
My head turns aside my heart wants to flee
Her face shows no flaw, her body no scars
Her feet float off the ground and her eyes are like stars
“My past I feel I’ve killed many a dream
Very few a man but I’ve tugged at their seams
My future is yours if you’ll give me your lead”
She whispered softly deep into my heart
Her hands rested on my face
Her body next to mine
Such scents, such skin, such light
Her dress wrapped around me
I dropped my hands off my sword.
Her arms rest on my shoulders
And her hands opened a door.
“Come my friend, you are tired and dead
From long days of traveling
Your voice needs rest”
My mind was stopped and my body controlled
My heart was open and so was my soul
I stumbled into the light as she
Held my hand to the door and as
I took my first step in
She laughed in a roar.
Her smile and the sound
it had convicted all else I’d observed
My trust, my power was now only hers
In such a soft friendly voice she whispered again to me
“You’re mine you know and I to thee”
My heart began beating and my mind was ablaze
The light seemed less blinding and
My soul not afraid.
I grabbed her hand and dropped down my blade
My armor, my shield, my gauntlets, my steel
My protection was gone
My body could feel
How did you know that I was the one?
How did you know that I was so alone?
“I didn’t” she replied
“I just thought you were cute.”
