Siren's Call

After peeling back

The tiles of a ghost,

A soldier and

A stranded siren,

I was looking into

The light created

By the beam.


It was sheltering me…


And I was curious

As to what was

Beyond the starlight,

Only seconds

Before it all



I sat until I felt


I drank until I knew



I didn’t know


While a beer

Befriended me.


I saw the ghosts

And felt the

Siren’s call.

She was a lady

Dressed in ocean colours.

He was a madman,

Dressed only in my

Stormed horizon.


Only then,

When it threw stones

At my head,

I asked



Rather than all

This thrashing,

Why not stop


The snake’s soul

And troubling

The ghost’s memory

Who knew nothing

At all?


And so,

I stopped

Asking the siren

For a brief

Moment of time,

As the dreams

Of her calling

Were not more

Than my falling

Into my inside

And revealing my soul.


I could do it…




In the end,

The siren was always

A mystery,

Yet her intrigue

And her disguise

Was all that I noticed,

And all that I knew.


She has been

My reason for

Falling in love


Falling apart.


At the moments

I have drowned,

She kissed my


And asked me to

Write it down.


And I have entered

The space.

I walk its grass,

I enjoy its aroma

And I roll

Around in the

Being alive in a

Seconds notice,

As the dreaming

Continues on into the morning

Of a sheltered romance,

And a

Siren’s call.
