The Seductive Sultry Sounds that Seemingly Sweet Sirens Sing


This is something I wrote recently while in my art class. In the chaos of all my proffessors critiquing in a room full of rowdy seniors waiting to leave college forever...my mind drifted off to something it usually finds itself drifting off to. While sketching to overcome the "tempest of my soul" I wrote this.......

 

Sleeping Beauty
It has been so long since my dreams were my own.... 

Girl with Rabbits
-Since the purity of my mind was as white as bone.  

The Mermaid
....Since the constant waves were able to lull me to sleep 

The Siren
Now I only hear screams calling me from the deep.

A Crisis
Calling me out of my warm bed... 

Angel Boy
Angel Boy
.....to touch the gold ringlets comming out of her head.  

Paolo and Francesca
To hear her sing to me one more time-

Ridding reason from the world with her beautiful rhyme.

Wanderer Looking over the Sea of Fog
Telling me things that I suppose will never be-

Since she only says them when I'm near the crashing sea.

Hope
My feet tangled in seaweed the water rises over my head-

                 The Siren sings sweetly to me
                                   Till I am almost dead.
