Dark Mermaid Song

“If fairytales were written for adults in riddles and poems,

it would go something like this.”

—Isabelle Kenyon, Fly On The Wall Poetry


“My bleeding heart,

my open vein,

a feast for the gulls

of this storm born world.
& I weep openly,

for if they read my tears

they will know I am real.”


Inspired by sirens, mermaids, sea witches, and seduction, Dark Mermaid Song offers a distinctly different voice than Rogue’s previous publications. If you have ever experienced loss, heartbreak, love, or joy, reading this poetry will bring back a shocking wave of emotions.
