Echoes of the deep

Tainted by fate
the sea nymph waits
the waters close upon her
can she bear the great weight?
Her song of loneliness
echoes in the ocean deep
the anguish trembles in her voice
alone her watch to keep
protected by the elements
from mankind's leering stare
midworld fathoms down
the intensity of loneliness too much to bear
listening, dreaming, hoping
somewhere... somewhere
