i'm_not_a_mermaid
Annie111 Poets and dreamers can't escape the idea that women are mystical creatures whose minds dance in moonlight; that they are coy, fragile, a bed of roses [but don't forget the thorns].

They think we always leave people guessing.

I hate to shatter the illusion, because it's a pretty one, but sometimes i don't feel like being fucking mystical. I want to win wars and slice open hearts so they pound in my fist, too. I want to be fearless, wise, ruthless and unfuckingforgetable. I want to be a woman.

ponder on this You say,"That mermaid in your drawing looks like you. Is it a self portrait?"

I say ,"That is not me. I made her."

Tori Amos But what if I'm a mermaid
in these jeans of his with her name still on it
Hey but I don't care cause sometimes
I said sometimes
I hear my voice and it's been here
Silent all these years

pipedream but i think i could be a mermaid...especially when i cut cleanly through water, body streamlined and beautiful in its rhythmic strokes, taking on a grace it doesn't on solid ground; sailing and swimming from one end to another...its such freedom..borrowing magic from neptune 030903

Spare Change The power and the awesome grace that just a glance from her encompasses. She is my goddess, my rudder and sail. One breathless kiss and I would go over. My mermaid girl she has no fins, no sea shell brassiere, only a glorious inexplicable freedom and fun. 030906

Lemon_Soda Not a mermaid. No titts for one...oh, and no fish tail either. I do like to swim though. Something embryonically soothing about it. 050513

Lila Pause Last year I planned to go to the races in a canvas sack that had painted on it in red "DOWN WITH PASSIVE FEMINITY!"
...With any luck, I would get on the news, and all those prissy women in their matching hats and dresses could just curl up and die.

But recently, I've wisened up to the fact that what youthful beauty I have is going to wither and rot like an apple dropped to the ground; eaten by worms.
- So now I juice it for all its worth. I pour over the fashion magazines, use expensive shampoo and make weekly additions to my wardrobe. I apply foundation every morning, wear high heels to school, and avoid cakes because they irritate my complexion.
I invest in my appearance like a blue-chip stock, expecting in return to recieve handsome dividends from idiots who should know better.
