The beautiful mermaid watches Her lone love continue on, And how she longs to be the one, The one to replace that frown With a shining smile
Years and years later, When the two girls were much older, They still walked alongside one another, Warm hands clasped tightly together An expression of forever
Staring in the mirror, Sunken eyes, hollow smile. Gazing ahead, Only a ghost looks back.
So, with a small but knowing smile, The girl always thinks to herself, "It's okay, you don't have to love me."
You keep showing me kindness after kindness, A bittersweet realization that more Will never be within my reach The kindness that glimmers In your bright eyes and serene smile, Is really just a hidden cruelty
