Quest of a Mermaid

I have dived deep to look for you,
braved sea storm and its creatures,
collected every pearl from its shell.

For only your silhouette in my heart dwells.

I still remember those days,
when we held hands,
splashed among waves.

But now they are just memories.

That fateful moment,
we stepped on demon’s chest,
and he turned you into pearl and laid to rest.


Since, then I scavenge sea’s heart, to find my love.

  2. Your poem is the perfect story for this picture! Now I see her not just holding pearls but bringing them to her heart.
