Coyoco – Siren Song [a dreadful poem]

whose song is that

i think i just might know — its maiden is quite sad though

it really is a dark tale of woe — sometimes i watch her frown as she cries hello

she gives her song a violent shake and whimpers until she hears her tears break

the only other sound’s are bleak and cunning as a snake as the distant waves and birds slowly awake

the song is beautifully colorful and deep — but she has white lies to keep

until then she shall never really sleep — the poor girl lies in bed with ducts that leak

she rises from her lonesome bed with weary thoughts of sadness drifting through her head

she sometimes even feels she’s dead — walking through the dream with a never ending feeling of dread
