Siren In The Sky

by Ashleigh Skye   Jan 10, 2008

(Dedicated to Jordan[my boyfriend], who seems to think this is about him)

When I see your eyes I'm trapped for good,
As your song proceeds to pull me near,
Love, happiness, peace, and serenity,
Bleeds from the song that I hear.

Floating in the sky of love,
You glow like a siren on the sea,
Dazzling beauty, radiant smile,
Your song calling out to me.

Your words glisten with affection,
As promises run off your tongue,
Ignorant of all the dangers,
Focused only on the song you've sung.

And then my angel turns his back,
As lightening bolts shatter the sky,
Shocking my soul, and tearing my vessel,
Leaving me to wonder why.

My vessel, no longer sky worthy,
Tumbles like a leaf on a crisp fall day,
Faster and harder towards the earth,
With no time to wish or pray.

Amidst my downward spiral,
I see my angel's smiling face,
The halo no longer existent,
For a darkness has taken its place.

In a few moments my ship will shatter,
As your face disappears in the mist,
But taking the chance and following you,
Was something that I couldn't resist.

    -The siren in the sky

    This poem feels as if it's missing something and I feel stupid because I can't think of what that something is. It's a great poem thougth and I look forward to reading it again once you find that something.

    I like how you write about a siren but also write about how a person is drawn to someone they are infatuated with, your comparing/calling them to a siren
