Sirens Song

(written October 2022)

Myths tell of a sirens song, but no one knows how the story began.

Years before, they had thrown her lifeless body into the sea.

Some said that was where she belonged.

Her body lay on the ocean bed while her soul wandered, forlorn.

Since that day, many boats have capsized, and countless sailors have drowned.

Stories narrated speak of a woman with wings, but no one has ever seen her face.

The only ones who know the truth are the men lured to their fate by a sweet melody.

And they are now lying in watery graves.
