Tail WomanA Poem by Viki Rachel
Guess what creature this is about.
Pulled under the water,
By someone I don't know.
I catch a glimpse of redness;
And a golden, shimmery glow.
A fish, mayhap--a large one,
With flesh I've seen before.
My fingers touch something familiar;
And now I'm dying to know more.
Fluidity unbeknownst to me,
Swift movements of a tail.
Encirling me like I'm pray;
My nervous arms and legs flail.
I hear a laugh behind me,
And a strong grip upon my arm.
After the giggle follows the words,
"Be still; I meant no harm."
A finger on my lips,
Two golden eyes bore into my own;
And though I am so close to drowning,
I have never felt so close to home.
Her beauty does not cease to astound me;
Her plump lips and golden curls.
Suddenly, I am convinced;
She is what I've wanted from so many girls.
I try to swim up to the water,
To stay alive, and then with her forever;
But her grip is not releasing,
And I have never been too clever.
"Why would you leave me?",
She whimpers, putting an ache inside my heart;
"Do you not love me, as I love you?
Would you desire us to be apart?"
Her lips press down on mine
In a soft, yet hungry fahsion;
On my behalf, I was quite eager,
Vying for her passion.
But darkness is coming too quicky,
And I'm struggling now to breathe.
Her tongue is down my throat,
As if begging me not to leave.
My body is sagging and limping,
With scarce breath in either lung;
And now I understand,
Why I should have run away when she sung...
