- Mermaid Blues -
The ocean has a mind that can not be swayed. I had ambitions to explore past my watery environment off the African deep water coast, but it is prohibited. On countless occasions, we have tried to escape, but my kind is held prisoner by the reefs and sway of the ocean.
As we touch the surface and gasp for our first breath of air, the sky opens and shatters with light that engulfs the air with turbulence.
The waves caused by the forming hurricane collapses to the forfeit of our escape. Defeated by the storm, created in our attempt to abscond our dreary environment, we sink to the ocean floor.
