Captive



Briny brink

And salty dreams

The ocean calls her name

Shed her skin

To take a peak

And man exposed her sin

Kept away

Under lock and key

No freedom from decay

Forced to wed

Captive breed

Her heart is yet consumed

Comes the day

He makes a mistake

And his selkie runs away

Forever thereafter

Their children seek too

The secrets of Neptune's blue
