Midnight Mist
Özcan Mermaid May 2015
The wind whispers in soft, lilting echoes;
that enchant and linger the presence of idle stars and graceful jasmines;
on a musky summer midnight

Özcan Mermaid May 2015
Thunderstorms wrench
and howl to the sound of your voice.

Purple Pearl Dreams
Özcan Mermaid May 2015
A ray of bliss thus becomes
a miss of broken dreams
and delicate pearls
scattered across
the purple skies
that glistens
and smiles

You, you and you.
Özcan Mermaid Apr 2015
In fact, it was about you. It always is; it always was, always will be.
I told you that it wasn't about you. I lied, it was about you; it always was, it always will be.
Özcan Mermaid Apr 2015
As sleepless thoughts savage,
the devil whispers into my ears,
softly triggering,
resonating melancholy,
the moan of a creature known to be depraved
and sinister,
soon becomes the lilt of an angel
who was once unfortunate
and misunderstood.
he calls me religiously and persistently,
captivating and lurring me,
to a side that has a melody; unknowingly *unholy.

Pain amongst pines
Özcan Mermaid Apr 2015
I dig my nails into my skin,
wanting to feel something that is deep within,
but nothing is ever enough,
and I never seem to win;

I pour a glass of wine;
and sniff amongst the vines,
sensing the scents of a million heartbreaks,
that were only ever mine.

Fool's Gold
Özcan Mermaid Apr 2015
How foolish was I to imagine
that I alone,
could be a ship;
in your turbulent
and tumultuous life,
when you were the ocean itself.

Özcan Mermaid Apr 2015
Something within: numb, cold and cruel.
creeping inside; persistently to hide.
shivering, deep aside.

God's Time
Özcan Mermaid Apr 2015
Of all the things that I could wish and hope for,
I prayed to a god who I doubt and disappoint;
begging for him to take me back in time,
just so that I could unmeet you... for one last time,
frankly, there isn't much that I wouldn't do,
for this to all become true.

Özcan Mermaid Apr 2015
You are the beautiful nightmare that haunts me awake;
into a place where my reality seems nothing but-
**bland and opaque.

Özcan Mermaid Apr 2015
To hear your voice, and see your face... Oh, I'd much rather take a blow to my brain.

Özcan Mermaid Apr 2015
You were a thorned rose; placed onto a rotting grave,
who made even death;
seem beautiful with *grace.

Özcan Mermaid Apr 2015
you were lost on my lips;
and erased from my mind,
yet buried
into my heart.

Satin Lips
Özcan Mermaid Mar 2015
The thought of my lips against yours are like soft satin plumped cushions that slowly press against each other;
slowly seeping,
and elevating,
yearning for more.
you still haunt me

the way that you did.

Özcan Mermaid Feb 2015
The pain rushes from the depth of my *****,
and into my bones;
the flutters that were once sweet in my guts,
are now belligerent ruptured tears
that unseeingly bleed.

Özcan Mermaid Dec 2014
Missing you
comes in waves.
I feel mellow,
I feel a rush; hitting me like a tsunami.
Nothing is ever consistent with you;
and won't be it seems
(just like the sea.)

The Ocean
Özcan Mermaid Dec 2014
Like the ocean; I am both mesmerised
and frightened by you.
more than anything; in the most beautiful
and tragic way.
You are alluring,
and wrench me,
like a ship
awaiting to
and deadly.

The mind that never sleeps; even at rest, it dreams.
a tormented mind.

As I watch the blood pour,
I feel you leave my system
a little more.

I wanted to kiss you,
but in a different way.
I wished you had kissed me;
in that same way.

Glass Souls
Özcan Mermaid Dec 2014
My glass is empty,
my heart is full.
I drink away the feelings that conquer all.
The spirits inside burn
my soul,
and soak the thoughts
of how I fall.
I wrote this one night whilst intoxicated; thinking about you. I noticed the emptiness of my glass and the fullness of my heart. And how the more I drank; the more I felt. So empty yet so full, of confusion and doubt.

Özcan Mermaid Dec 2014
You said you wanted to die,
and so a part of me did.
Two souls. One heart.

Finding myself
Özcan Mermaid Dec 2014
I found myself in you,

*You are me; even more than I could ever be.

May in December
Özcan Mermaid May 2014
I pity that day;
that cold, gloomy day.
In that month of December,
where my heart was in its May.
Blossomed and warm;
you were my spring right away.
I still remember that day...
Like it was just yesterday.

He was in love in a time I was not,
he fell out slowly;
I fell in. Deeply and tragically.

Tears lost at Sea
Özcan Mermaid Jan 2014
To you, I was a tear drop in the sea; bitter and salty.
She was the entire ocean; a mystery crystal clear.

Hidden Sorrows
Özcan Mermaid Nov 2013
She lost herself in her sadness and drowned sorely in her tears.
Emotions flooding;
shivers down her spine,
freezing into the depth of her bones,
Hurting. She hides... Like the moon behind the sun;
aches and sorrow behind her smile.

Black Soul
Özcan Mermaid Nov 2013
Your eyes like your soul.

Anaemic Heart
Özcan Mermaid Oct 2013
Your heart belongs to me,
I clench to it; in the palm of my pale cold, hands.
I feel myself holding onto something that is not mine,
and will never be. (I let go.)  
My mind floods with unanswered questions;
suffocating... I gasp; struggling to breathe.
Why must you cause me so much misery and pain? Yet I find myself doing the same.

— The End —
