HomePoetry StoriesNaiad


Glitter water flowing
Sun flecks on her skin
Dancing with the river
As graceful as a nymph

Free from care and troubles
Smooth unfurrowed brow
The visage of an angel
Whose serenity is found

On land her heart weighed heavy
Life’s burdens bearing down
Afloat, her tresses streaming
Dressed in her aqueous gown

Moving with the current
Cleansed of tragic stain
Watching her is joyful
Relinquishing her pain

Celebrate her solace
As tranquilly she glides
No longer broken-hearted
Another suicide.
