“Little Mermaid”

I waited and sighed, biding your time
Not willing to let it go
Paced in a daydream suspended in
Tears I tried not to show

You never noticed, never cared
Your smile callously cool
I was moved to make you love me
‘Til I drowned in a fruitless pool

Yet still I watched and waited for you
To give me signs that were never to be
Every unspoken word you never said
Was a current dragging my body further out to sea

Your ship moved on and so did you
My arms reached for you one last time
But I was nothing now but billowing foam
Left staring at an empty sky
