A Mermaid Entombed

A Mermaid Entombed

A Poem by Siddhartha

Here you remain

Trapped in the skin of time

 

Of forgotten Gods, and angels

When eternity subsumed transient time

Now mummified in mortality

 

This glass that entombs you

Can scarcely contain your scream

You, of slight and innocence

Benumbed by this glorified decadence

 

Small talk over coffee

As mortals gossip

Over their petrified lives

Debauched by a selfish world;

Living in barricaded cocoons

 

You, a mummified exhibit

Barricaded in a glass capsule

Awaiting forgotten Gods

To kiss life

You’d scarcely survive a moment now

An antiquated curio of a bygone era

Very well written, was a breathe of fresh air reading this. Flowed well, wordplay was nice. So many meanings could be pulled from this and that's what makes it art. Thanks for sharing!
