    As I traveled the vast Desert

    I was parched and in need of water.
    Water is life, water renews

    I began to hallucinate.

    I looked over the next dune.

    I saw an Oasis.

    So I ran towards it hoping to quench.

    As I got closer it faded.

    Of course it was a mirage

    On the vast Ocean as I traveled

    Charting for never before seen coast

    I sailed for days that turned into weeks

    Over the next cresting wave

    I saw something unknown.

    I was on this voyage all alone.

    I saw something

    It was a figure

    Similar to a woman

    It was a dream.. maybe it
    Is what is called a mermaid

    That mystical beauty that exist in tales

    Then I thought about the time

    I was stranded with no water
    In the Desert

    It was a mirage again

    But, I am Not in the Desert

    There was water all around me


    So is there a difference in tales you ask?
    I don't think there are in fact


    If I tell I saw it
    Please don't tell me I didn't

    They are my needs and desires

    My rude awakenings

    My mirages in fact.

    In the desert

    I was missing my water
    And I needed some

    On the Ocean

    I was missed my Girl
    Her I always desire


    They converged when needed
    Into the heart

    So I let them unfold
    It is my world.
