Siren Whispers

Siren Song


Light bringer

What prayers are given

within this holy silence – 

how does the wish to be anointed 

with the saving grace of touch

manifest itself,

what way do you desire 

finding a home in a heart’s 


as well as its future,

what creed do you memorize –

a name spoken

hushed tones


a vulnerability you wear


who do you call forth as

light bringer

to your darkness

I am the girl…

all of my life accepted by all

but embraced by few

as kindred.

A life lived on the fringes.

The quiet, acceptance, and understanding I needed

found within.

A solitary life amid others

where the voices heard were my own.

Distinct and indistinct.

The tenor of my present and past

guiding me forward.

The world that I created

gentling the sometimes-jagged edges

of this life

as I cast an unwavering gaze upon the future.

Refusing to flinch

at harsh light, cold wind, or seemingly impossible odds.

The tears that fall are my own

to see

to know

a burden I carry.

To be unknown

except to myself.

A melancholy prospect

as I hold that façade in place

by sheer willpower and determination.

Protecting my inner life

until the day that someone starts to dismantle it

with kind eyes that see me clearly

and with a touch that tells me

I am home.

My restless spirit

Ireland, June 2016

My heart will be heavy

when I leave the sea.

As I get older

the need for this renewal

is keen.

My longing 


My restless spirit

always finding its home

amid the waves.
