Siren

There was a sailor
Some say the best to sail the sea
He lived for the salty air
And longed for gold and rubies

But one day sitting quietly
In the darkest corner of a sunken pub
He heard tale of a treasure so great
It would overshadow all other loves

T'was a foreboding warning
Of beautiful sirens who lie in wait
And sing their spellbound lullabies
To entice sailors as bait

He shrugged it off
Smirking with a cocky scoff
And set sail the next morning
Not giving a second thought

After a couple of days at sea
With the sun bearing down
He heard the sultry sirens song
And quickly slowed the boat down

Then he said aloud to his first mate

"When the siren sings
And I gaze upon her beautiful body
Lying on the beach
I'm drawn into her fantasies.
But it's my deepest darkest dreams
Surrounded by unfathomable treasure
Yet all I can think of
Is her dark enticing ring."

Then the great sailor
Gave in to his desires
It was too late
His situation was dire

He forgot all about
The gold and rubies he coveted so
And swam over to the siren
A new treasure to which he could behold

He thought...

As she holds me down
Pulling me under to drown
Her songs weave their magic in my ears
And I go peacefully with no fear
