Lost love.
The stars were falling
And the mermaids were laden with light
Prayers flew from every corner of the sea
The pull of the tide brought them
I had hoped it would bring you to me

The glaciers glimmered gliding in the cold
Prayers contained in salty glass bottles
Prayers Rolled
Prayers Folded
Prayers Crumpled

The stars had fallen
And the mermaids harvested their new treasures
Wishes were made from every shore along the sea
The wind carried them swiftly across many oceans
I had hoped it would bring you to me

The wading waters whimpered and died
Wishes held in muffled echoes
Wishes Cried
Wishes Screamed
Wishes Whispered

The stars fell
And the mermaids began to weave new constellations
And reborn eyes gazed from every shadow on the sea
And the wind did die and the bottles did shatter
And I realized you would never pray or wish to be with me
