A Mermaid’s Winter Castle

a mermaid with a golden tail,
lived inside a snow emporium.
controlled by a pair of hands,
a blizzard fell everytime he shook.

when his heart was light, snow fell gently.
white flecks kissed her ginger hair and
the painted smile on her face was genuine.

but on dark days, the hands were fury,
casting the mermaid into chaos.
but she knew there was no escape,
from the her painful glass home.

and on other days,
when he felt no use for his beautiful slave,
she was left on the shelf.
untouched, unloved
but still nice to look at.
so the young mermaid sat alone,
feeling the ache of her abandoned heart.
