Light within

She sings her song
Dressed in jewels falling
Like mermaid tears
Glittering on sand.
She builds her castles
The higher ground shifting
Still washes out to sea
Lights flicker within
Then upon crashing waves die.
She swims to far horizons
Searching for the past she left
Needing to cast away
The pain it brings
Like sad treasures on the sand
Rolling below
She sits alone
The rocks under moonlit skies
And watches the shapes move about
She is invisible to their eyes
As they search for their own trinkets
Oblivious to her existence
She slips silently back
As the waves move through
Erasing any sign
That she had been
For but a moment
Among them.

  2. ‘The pain it brings’

    Considered the ‘brings’ against a ‘brought’ here, but feel that either would work and ‘brings’ just puts that emotion into the present – well captured image to poem feel from this – thank you
