old soul song

All those men were there inside,
when she came in totally naked.
They had been drinking: they began to spit.
Newly come from the river, she knew nothing.
She was a mermaid who had lost her way.
The insults flowed down her gleaming flesh.
Obscenities drowned her golden breasts.
Not knowing tears, she did not weep tears.
Not knowing clothes, she did not have clothes.
They blackened her with burnt corks and cigarette stubs,
and rolled around laughing on the tavern floor.
She did not speak because she had no speech.
Her eyes were the colour of distant love,
her twin arms were made of white topaz.
Her lips moved, silent, in a coral light,
and suddenly she went out by that door.
Entering the river she was cleaned,
shining like a white stone in the rain,
and without looking back she swam again
swam towards emptiness, swam towards death.

“ Some say fate is beyond our command, but I know better. Our destiny is within us. You just have to be brave enough to see it.”

i’ve always wanted to be one of those oversized sweater-wearing wavy haired bookish girls who drinks pumpkin lattes and takes walks through the leaves in their boots but in reality i’m a 18 ft five-headed firebreathing dragon and we don’t wear boots

A mermaid found a swimming lad,
Picked him for her own,
Pressed her body to his body,
Laughed; and plunging down
Forgot in cruel happiness
That even lovers drown.

I love this series of illustration on photographies by Lorena. To start with, her style is simply the most adorable illustration style I’ve seen, but I think it’s more that feeling of fairy tale that it has.
