A Siren Song


 A narrow path,
falling rock,
shards of shale
more marked
than the darkness.

 Rushing water,
side lies
the road,
belies the trail,
steals my soul.

 Icy spray
upon my face
a bed of pine
beneath my feet,
the siren weeps.

 Bent in sway
the river calls;
I dip, I dive deep,
beyond swimming,
this release.

Dear Anne;

This IS about suicide... right? That last stanza seems to seal it so. You may enjoy my "Lord and Lady Shade" and "Nosferatu Aeterna".

Nicely done,

The words are so true, how the song calls. With the medival background it sounds romantic as hell.

Very rich tapestry of images about a subject that has been around since the Garden of Eden almost. Well done girl.
