The Siren

A Poem By Anna // 6/2/2008

See our fair rock-carved city
On waves black as tar
Under periwinkle sky
And soft violet stars

That’s where we sit
In time outside of clocks
You’d better avoid us
Or you’ll crash on the rocks

Stop up your ears
Or you may be entranced
And never come back
From our misshapen land

For we are thunderstorms at night
That cause children to hide
We’d love you and kill you
With one song, take your life

We fall in love with our visitors
In the same moment, they die
For the song of a siren
Is both hello and goodbye

We’ve no choice but to sing
But that makes us more deadly
Though it’s enthralling
It’s a lethal medley

So be wary, dear child
If you find waves black as tar
Sky more purple than blue
And soft violet stars

We fall in love with our visitors/ In the same moment, they die/ For the song of a siren/ Is both hello and goodbye

Good!

I really really, like it Anna!

There's only one thing I would change...
"But that just makes us more deadly..."
Except for that line, the whole poem is very... I can't think of the right word. I guess it flows and is in the same style, except for that line.
May just be me, but it seems kind of awkward.

Anyways... keep it up! *hug*

I changed the line a little, but I'm not sure exactly what you meant so I'm not sure it helped any...

The quality of mercy is not strain'd;
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath: it is twice blessed;
It blesseth him that gives, and him that takes
