Sonnet 02/4/2019   Lust in the Littoral Realm MCCXLIV

I dream of bright–eyed mermaid in the light
Of moon and stars. Can I find even one
Who might give me her smile? Might she delight
In having hold of heart? Has dream begun
That leads to my heart’s healing? Should I think
I might have a chance to saline kisses share?
I know that I might some affection drink
From mermaid’s lips, if I would only dare.
I long to hold this mermaid, and now try
To find hope for heart’s desire, for a while.
Her love may kill me, but I know that I
Will die with less regret, and with a smile.
Just let me drown in mermaid’s loving arms,
That I might breathe my last from her sweet charms.
