o, nereid, temptress of the deep,
curl your fingers at us
and wind your hair around our wrists
so that our minds are no longer the rushing rivers
they used to be.
o, nereid, queen of the capricious tides,
pull us under the current
with just a smile
and your butterfly-wing eyelashes.
o, nereid, angel of the sea,
paint our demise with shafts of moonlight
until we are nothing but
another water lily
adorning your silver tresses.
okok so i didn't know if it should be "o, nereid," or "o nereid" please don't come at me if i got it wrong sorry :/
