‘The Mermaid In Me ‘

A Poem by Rose Petal🌹
"

Love sets free🌹

"
The Mermaid In Me:

Oh mercy me
I’m lost at sea
Oh what will
Become
Of
Me -

Oh mercy me

Can’t you see

My hearts floating
Upon
Pure ecstasy

Lost at sea

There’s no lifeboat
For me -

Oh can’t you
Please
Set me
Free-

The pounding
Waves
They rush to
Shore-
But
Oceans wide-

I’m lost in
A back current
Of tide-

Engulfed in marine
Of a heavenly dream-

White horses cap
Each wave of love

Screaming to the
Gulls above

I’m drowning
In each
Undercurrent -

Churning
Burning

Heavens above
The sky so blue -
I wish only
Upon you

Save me
From this sea -
Caress me upon
The shores
Of life-

Removing

All doubt
And strife.

dear Kelly... a Mermaid is very Brave to risk her existence with pleas of lost at sea. She is an integral part of dreams and poetry. She has given many a sailor the adventure of love that will give him courage to begin a family. We mortals dream of sleeping in the sea with beautiful voyages under the ocean deep. Your poetry gives us the respite of tranquility. truly, Pat

Well crafted imagery with strong rhyme & rhythm, describing in a palpable way how it can feel when we surrender to the tumbling sensations of needing another person. Excellent use of extended metaphor with strong word & phrase choices to carry the "ocean" theme thru-out. Perfect blend of conveying the tumble of waves, while also suggesting the tumble of being crazy in love (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

There is a magical innocence about this one. The thought of a mermaid being rescued by her love is just so sweet. Lydi**

"The mermaid in me" flows like a love song. Wonderful images you paint in the mermaid 's plea. You brought Hans Christian Andersen's Little Mermaid to my mind. Beautiful writing!

Many kind of battles. This one was epic.
"Save me
From this sea -
Caress me upon
The shores
Of life-"
The sea is tempting and the wild ride is needed for us to learn. One more day mean another chance to do some good and find some peace. Thank you Kelly for sharing the amazing poetry.

Always my pleasure dear Kelly and you are welcome.
most definitely we need a compass...when we are hopelessly in love with someone who just refuses to Captain our ship...or with someone we want to trust but have no reassurance and just can't--
it is like wave after wave of uneasiness...

I didn't tell You, didn't I? that when I was little I BELIEVED that in some previous life I was mermaid, so You can imagine how Your poem touch me.

The Mermaid in You, that part inside You, of sacrifice, of giving all You can for Your love, still dreaming, achingly dreaming for her prince to free her, fly her over the green grass, oh! You brought so many pure and sweet childhood memories…

Kelly - I too was born and raised down the shore. So use to the pounding
surf, the riplets of water washing across my feet. Walking the sand with the
one you love holding them close enough that feeling the beating of their heart
is not unlike the roar of the sea.
Its' so easy to get lost in the rhythm of the sea, wanting, needing the gentle
caress and being able to withstand the seas' onslaught.

Very nicely expressed Kelly - take care - Dave
