NPM: Siren Song

I am a siren singing on the rocks

knowing that I will one day draw you to myself

and hoping that you will be the one

who won’t get dashed to pieces

and fearing that history must always repeat itself

and loving you too much

to watch you die on the barren shore

my song falters, my words skitter away like frightened birds

I sit silent, afraid that you will come to me

and terrified that you won’t

    I love this one – that delicate tension of pulling toward and pushing away. So good.
