The mermaid swooshes his tail near the surface of the sea
The water slides over his scales and the sunlight sparkles
He powers downwards, pushing through the water pressure
The pitch black presses around him, but he perseveres
Fish float by, flicking their gazes towards his face
But he fears them not, and follows the current toward the floor
The cold water cuts at him, creeping up his shoulder blades,
But he carries on, quickening his carefree crawl
His long locks of hair hang low as he lands at the bottom
He lounges in the sand, looking at the life laid out above.
He spots surfboards and spies scuba divers
He watches schools of fish swim across his vision.
He sits with his hands on the sand, smiling at what he sees
Even as from all sides the sea surges against him.
A/N: I do not like the last line but idk how to bring poetry to a close ahhh
