My Cliff

(Ain’t no mermaid)

(Modified pic from Pxhere)

From the bottom of my cliff, I can’t forget nor forgive.
Smashed on the groundwater all around, your enthusiasm burdens me down.

In-Depth, holding my breath, stuck with this stick, from where I stand — infinite rocky-sand spread.

Soaking wet, laying there.

A long lost voice — from the bottom of my cliff — I ain’t no mermaid.
I can’t forget nor forgive.
