“I want to be a mermaid. Mermaids don’t drown.”

“I am a siren, and for my adoration of mankind, have been caught in fishing nets one time too many. And in those fishing nets I have learned too many unfavorable things about human intentions and the lack of trust and goodwill; I’m not going to allow myself to be caught, anymore. Sirens do well at singing the sirens’ song and dragging vile people to their deaths, and for good reason!”

~ C. JoyBell C.

Gadreel’s Song

I sang my sweet song

Where ocean waves lapped the shore

Still no mermaids came

“I must be a mermaid. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.”

~ Anaïs Nin
