Holy Water

Am I a mermaid?

For surely I can’t be real.

For I have had to drown and dowse myself in holy water for so long…

Tired of feeling the callous hands of men

I would rather feel the water overtake me

Drowning out all sound

all light

all visions and the ensuing illusions.

 

For surely only a mystical creature can endure these hardships

Experiences so heart wrenching and ethereal in their happenings

That one begins to feel this must be all make believe.

A fairy tale told to deter the careless little girl

 

But see, even the little girl wishes she was a mermaid – for she too has memories she wishes to drown.
