Angry Moon Mermaid by Linda M. Crate

you denied any wrong doing,
but the sirens in your eyes
told me otherwise
still luring maidens and their dreams
to death;
but love is the greatest power we could have
or hope to know
i won't let you turn it into a perversion
because your lust
is enough to break hearts and maybe even souls
i fly with the wings of ravens
dance with the fae
swim with the mermaids,
and i am a daughter of the moon;
i will not be afraid to cross you in the sunlight or in the heart
of the darkest night
the rabbit hearted girl you once knew is gone
i am a battle ready warrior
the vampire with the foolproof plan couldn't foresee me
i know you think you're oh so clever,
but for you that would be a difficult endeavor;
mermaids can be every bit as dangerous as sirens
i will drown you in the hurricanes of my rage.
