A Tale of Two Tails

I’ve heard many myths,
Many legends as well.
Only one that I’ve found,
Is a pleasure to tell.

A tale of two tails,
One of ice, one of fire.
But equal in passion,
Their forbidden desire.

Mermaids are secretive,
They stay on their side.
So in this painful way,
Their love was denied.

Their meeting was one,
Made purely by chance.
The monthly, high-tide,
In the sun and moon’s dance.

The cooler seas rose,
With a hiss and a splash,
To meet in the middle,
A lake of lava and ash.

Here came the moment,
Where green eyes found blue.
Young curiosity,
The rumours were true.

The Ice Ones exist!
Green Eyes exclaimed.
To only receive a glare,
Not a name.

Blue Eyes was cautious,
Oh the stories he’d heard.
The Fire Ones were different,
But that must be absurd?

He looks just like me?
Blue eyes thought with a frown.
I like his pink hair…
His voice has a nice sound.

They must have told lies,
He can’t be that bad.
Now that I’ve met him,
I can only feel glad.

Won’t you tell me your name?
Green Eyes spoke with a smile.
Well you’re already here,
Why not stay on a while?

Just call me Gray,
Blue Eyes said in return.
So what do I call you?
It must be your turn.

Natsu. Call me Natsu.
Came the bubbly reply.
A grin and a wink,
A sparkle in his eye.

Here though my tale,
It starts coming undone.
As the tides start to fall,
At the bright rising sun.

Will I see you again?
Intense gazes meet.
No words need be spoken,
Just a synced, calm heartbeat.

That should have been enough,
For their time was well out.
It was only their nature,
A sliver of doubt.

Another week passed,
That tide never did rise.
At least not how they needed,
Turning promises to lies?

It is true though,
That tide eventually rose.
They could finally lock hands,
They could float nose to nose.

They are happiest now,
When high-tide rolls around.
The time spent together,
Their bond most profound.
