Saltwater tears

Saltwater tears

A Poem by ♥ Kinnixk
"

...

"

So crystal clear her saltwater tears

dripping down one by one

One for her hopes

The other for her dreams

Now bleak and unforgiving

forgotten long ago.

 

All alone

as she always is

No one to rely on

no one but the wide stream of saltwater tears

 

Now and again

the full moon rises

Her throat burns and aches

and the song is once again free.

 

So alluring and compelling

Even the strongest can’t deny

They must answer the call

they trip and fall

Never to re-emerge from the saltwater tears

 

Nothing but song

Compelling, beautiful, irresistible

waving through the air

On high notes of serenity

 

She longs for the song of the siren to end

She can’t stand another death

but lo-

the voice stills

and thundering silence echoes.

 

Another has answered.

She closes her eyes

Saltwater tears fall.

What a beautiful story!
How untypical for a siren to feel pity for her victims. But it's interesting to read and actually quite true - they sure must be lonely, because none of those falling for them ever get to keep them company.
So, what keeps her singing? What were her hopes and dreams? Seems as if she is as compelled to keep making herself miserable by being the death of her prey as they are to fall for her. How sad, but beautifully written.
I like how you repeat "saltwater tears", it's as if she's cried the ocean those she lures into their moist grave drown in.
