Siren

Our island swing
waves sing
slow current
sunburnt
the siren sang
a mermaid’s call
in a trance
I began to fall
sinking fast
for you

Might have you out
cast out doubt
unravel your magic
break the spell that
makes me shout
hallelujah
hypnotized
sanitized
baptized into the voodoo
called you

But I still worship you
hallow the very ground you tred
swallow every word you said
follow every sound you made
hollow every promise bade
allow every dream to fade
into you

In your hazel eyes I stare
lost in deep hues
of green and blue
grant one last prayer
one last plea
dispel dispair
let me flee
set me free
let me be
me instead
of you
