An awful spell
unto her befell
for the prince did love her not

For a potion she begs
to recieve her legs
and an ocean to be forgot

The nasty sea witch
was an awful bitch
for she knew Ariel's demise

With a sinister grin
and a furious spin
her magic not at all a surprise

A torment too much to bare
Ursula made her to swear
Her fins be renewed,
all the girl had to do
was put the prince in a watery tomb

So she swam to the edge of the shore
the place she had been once before
where her love had made her to suffer
a place where now, he loved yet another but...
Through all her anguish and pain
her heart, it remained the same
and though he was untrue
this young girl, she knew
his life she could never claim

So, to the witch she solemnly returned
to face a sentence, sadly she earned
An eternity fated to roam
in an ocean, a mass of sea foam
Once I was a child who loved to dream
I wanted that happy ending for the little mermaid
and so I rid the damsel who stood in the way
and then I waited for the prince
to remember the mermaid and love her again,
but he never did,
and they both died sad and heartbroken.
Meanwhile, from my dungeon sprung the damsel
now transformed into a fully fledged witch
who howled with rage whenever love approached
always appearing as the ugly stepsisters
the evil stepmother, the evil queen
taunting me in my dreams every night
thanking me for spawning her into life.
just thinking like a young child again..
happy endings don't come true when you have to hurt someone else to make them happen
I. The Mermaid

I am six years old,
and I am obsessed with Ariel
from The Little Mermaid--
she is, by far,
my favourite Disney Princess.

I want to be exactly like her--
hair billowing in red swirls
around a heart-shaped face
and eyes so blue they put the very
ocean to shame
(my sister has blue eyes too, you know,
and, to this day, I still envy her,
for her eyes are the loveliest
characteristic of her Beauty--
and believe me, there are many);
purple clam shells vibrant
against porcelain-doll skin
and fully blossomed breasts
(in three years from now,
I will begin
to grow boobs--
elementary-school style,
over-ripe.
B Cups going on C cups
fated to become D Cups,
plum-sized
in comparison to the
budding mosquito bites of
my fellow classmates.
Barely a child,
womanhood threatens
to sexualize my girlish body
before I truly know
what sexualization is);
fins cutting through the water
gracefully in all their
green, iridescent glory
(little did I know that,
as I grew older,
"cutting" would adopt
a far more sinister meaning
in the context of my life).

But,
despite my admiration for Ariel,
I fail to understand her desire
to abandon her
under-sea rendezvous,
sunken treasures,
oceanic melodies to
"be where the people are."

This lack of approval I foster
exists due to the fact that I am
a firm believer of the magic
the aquatic realm (and Disney)
has to offer.

To this day,
I continue to maintain my stance--
that Ariel had been terribly wrong
in the choices she made--
but I have become cognizant of
different (and better) reasons
to argue my position;
after all,
and as a cartoon crab
had so wisely declared once,
"The human world--
it's a mess."
Don't be a stranger--check out my blog!

a beautiful mermaid went fishing once
​but was made a bait by a stupid dunce,
bravely not minding her fins,
she hit him right in his shins
and so that wrackspurt met his comeuppance!
Fun write.

faceless stain on a storefront sill,
sleeping-bag legs, a leprous mermaid,
Siren's song, a banshee wailing,
pavement princess, guttered girl

a third of God in brown-bagged anonymity,
breath like a dead man's diary,
nothing speaks inside this shell,
no sea to whisper 'c'est d'accord',

fairytales are potent ales and ponytails
like strangled herbs,
this feast is yeast and pathogens,
the rot makes sunlight blue,

once upon a time and parsley,
gardens blossomed, thorned with roses
but saboteurs with secateurs
cut virgin buds like flower-thieves,
infused a wicked perfume,

poisoned scents-
dark incense,
sends her west, no common-sense,
the shortened span of doorway days
is baleful bliss to nights
of noxious cologne.
This is not, a time to loosen up
Or nine to five job to give up
Just saddle up the power is in you
Five ladies cafe to dine at five and
drove* the meter is running
(The Canadian Cup) team versus the
     *Taxi Cup*
He swooned you in your
Five dreamy but 1/2 heart sugars

*Just sip take a trip come on your lovers*

Come on Baby bloomers
Let's see some boom!!!!
In your hips, men
will be
men
The temptation 1*2*3*4*5

We need fewer digs
*With World, we need more heart flags*

We don't have to
cross our hearts
Perhaps tattoo heart legs
Don't get caught in a mesh
Clean up your trash
No more Strikes to flash
The lucky ones to cope

What a rope in
This isn't the Pope
Somehow we all get broke
To court her like your the
lasso
Their hearts like Lassie
How I met them
The deeper
we go more impact
Those seven sins
Never a change of
subject how it
remains in your heart

Prayers to God*

How it hit hard to react
But changed to
five cards
I wonder if the
heart card was there
We win

Heart digs
1-where?
Oh! There
No, I am here
We are always  
In-between
numbers
I only
have 5 minutes
No, I phone have a heart
Oh! where is designed for me
Those five plates
Whats in between them

      Him

But the show must go on
We are opening Live- Five
Strong heart to give the caring
The useful heart is never so daring

My gate
Digging

Hugging
Or losing add +++
The hard and
crunchy
Flirty
Dirty
Our community
Heftier like Jupiter
Heart to build
the gravity

A big kiss hunch
of five roses
Your getting to bloom
but only have
5 extra movie parts

Laced curtains waved your water
like a mermaid tail
Your heart delicate hands
opened up your emails

I think you hit the
Jackpot
Max to the million shot

No heart of gold
Only more leaders
Scrambling and digging your fork
Mixing those egg beaters

Five men think they know
there women
like ten
commandments
Turn to five wrong
engagements
There it goes the lucky
five arguments

A plot beating
like a hot-shot
The French Baguette
Bread like firecracker
Five-carat baguette
wedding band in her safe
Heart digs to five hands
Heart neck guilty as a giraffe
The cafe house had only
5 cups left  they sold you out
Only Five Bed and breakfast
stayers
Do detailed with their Ladyfingers

This is five alive forever to be players
But need more alone time
or someone will
be doing the time

What is real-time so sublime

That rose- paper cut- origami
Sorcerer of five he was like the
cold cuts of big Sub Salami
Japanese sword samurai

What a Geronimo Oh! no
Jericho
This wasn't a hot potato
Or Gizmo No-Go

Getting a shot for Polio
The gusto songs to the heart play
*Maestro
the Cosmo's
5 stars to heart his afterglow
Like a titanic ship but heroics
Five lunatics crazed erotic
5 Mario gamers so demonic
DOMINO'S bed five students wed
We dug deeper get-up sleepy-head
The Clock 5 clock
heartless boom *

Exposed cries location set
Network U- dig cups heart unsugared
Be personalized hardship traumatized
Something curved car tear cursed
He misplaced my lips
Like frying pan egg scrambled words
Crossed heart Rapper so believing

The Fox five sticking tacky glue
His CD Rose lying pants no clue
Painful pointed shoes need R&R

2 -B reassured Restlessness
     Robin's *Responsibilities
The Heart On Replay

The deeper you dig to restart
My heart is like a
healthy hearty brain
Definitely sharp and smart

Men on Pause I truly believe nature takes its course
but another beat to go is that so?
I am on fire and ice a heart is
never the forever
Five times I had to wake you up


I am the love cure reminiscing,
giving me five reasons
Our beautiful change of heart in season
Studying the fine art heart
Referencing

Never refusing, relive my life
five-step to strive
Robin shoutbox she getting
her point across
Housewives or Singles
Either you're the worker or loner
The heart pleaser the boss
Your heart looks good on your dress
Whether we win or deep mess
The good heart can change to a bad start

Bad love outfoxed
Venus- beauty moved on like a
pathologist
digging over
For  fresh start be heart
The hearts what digs this is not the 9-5 workers we are talkers
and long settling in heart walkers come any join me we may actually be alive did I get a live one

@ The Body-book shop

The Gold bonds his book Hot Rods
She reads about the Angels and Gods

He covers her mind and book
with his lotion

Are we ready for the E-book
In tip-top condition motion
Someone is mysteriously trying to tell me something?

How the moon hangs low
The book made her eyes
Open to really know?

I phone to book she's the grab bag
I'm leaving on a Jetplane
One chosen E-Book
Was Scarlet love flame


How the book needs to grab you
The day you were born or reborn
Never to lose your sight
But why does he split your pages

In a hot rush* money wages

The heart is bleeding out words
Feeling so crushed the bookend
Energetic stare or the blank stare
Your enticing book
What happens underside me
The pages one-sided

You're the sweet of the complicated
getting bittersweet to be love mated


The sundae banana split
*My ring book marker my lovely curls


I couldn't share my book what it said
Do you really love me
The spinning wheel
Feminity of book so girly but
Love so dizzy

To be told overstocked to be sold
But someone loved it
Its been properly viewed
Buying and reselling hearts of
book timeshare

His workout
he loves his curls
Ebook he sees he memorized
all his European beauty
turning do you love her books madly
The beast  is inside Jekyll
Girls needed to hide but got
Hyde
The book seeing our life
From a blinded pageview
What's beside our words
We need to be upfront
Once in a million chances
The whole planet of funny books
beach house turned
Blank page
of a clown funhouse tree stalk

What is the point of view
Like an adult book raided
If you're the unadulterated
The innocents being naive
Wanting him so much
Whats the use it's like a
the blank page
Like your hairstyle
the sixties pageboy
You need book law and order
Like the Feng Shui book surrender
Be focused Graphically cool artist
And paint it colors no
gun it blanks no favors
My book place has the ambiance
Different mysteries
and suspense behaviors

Somehow it thickens
like "French" roue paste

You didn't want one
page to waste
E for the Exodus
A blank page is love minus
You're hitting a plateau
E- love of kiss-book
French Chateau
Ebook has a pattern the same thing
It repeats and devours your thoughts
The ancient Grecian her structural
form of statues
That rip page needed words to capture

The Clean-Slate page to restart
your flight
The prize
Emprise
Empire to the book hire
E-book desire
E-lust
It sets an example
we need to trust
Not to mislead your mind
Whats behind the book
Exhumed or to be doomed
Like Witchcraft magical hands

This wasn't the Godly land
The blank page had a spell
"The Burned Book" no one
will ever know
Can we take it back what was written inside
We need to restore give more (Cat and Mouse) chase

As my equal poison mind of sugar
Equally or naturally book gifted
Wrap silk ribbons or too much
the anxiety of red tape
Explosion of E=books
Elixir eyes to the Ebook doorway
But the blank pages were
still inside

E-book and the text
Whats next Sex journalism
The kingdom of Elust
E-book became all excuses
Those blank tweets of
Hummingbirds
Like you got some
earwax all codes and emblems
My blank form income tax problems?

Storming damage to the max of my book

Hitting rock or book bottom
You're still living in a shape
of an eggcup

And reading by your nook
Your Ebook swish wish a nymph
floating mermaid

Things turn (Retro) just go
The book was the turn of events
More pages to heart mend

We are not experts or philosophers
Get inside the greener grass
like a grasshopper

Your lovely book a tranquil place
You were booked into your gown
But your ebooks is being
transported to other towns

Her heart was skipping his pages
She never got the chance to read
His chosen page
Life is so the open book
Eyes wide shut
E-book a cozy nook and where does it begin or end did I see some blank pages in between. I need a new for a taste for something on my speed I love to read it fascinated me every page but something stopped me to continue I wonder how long will this go on being fun and retro just go to the bookstore you may be pleasantly surprised of what you might see
