Let love and faithfulness never leave you.

Shelby. 17. From Iowa & an exchange student in Argentina:)




"I met a mermaid out at sea
last week, fell in love
like a wave. I brought her
home, put her in the bathtub
but her tears kept coming.
I told her how much
I loved her; and her eyes
stayed wet and raw.
I asked the old sailor on the beach
why I couldn’t stop her crying.
He told me it’s because
she loves the sea more
than she can ever love me,
and now I’d trapped her
those tears were the only
way for her to taste it.
That night I kissed the salt
off her tongue and begged her
to stay. The sea’s a song,
she sobbed, and I’m its lyrics.
I love you, let me go."
