i am...

Posted to Action Poetry




i am a mermaid
legs tied up
like a fish
swimming
below
the surface
of myself,
a missed
myth
held ransom
by the hold
of a stolen
unicorn,
torn by
the jab
of his
unique,
the pique
of him,
my exhale
underneath
the pull of tide,
his ride, my majesty,
filled by the
tragedy
of it
all.
