"A Dark Faery Tale" #2: Ariel

Ariel

A demon faery of the sea,
wants to play a game with me.
Her eyes bright and yellow,
like the anglerfish she keeps.
Her smile just as menacing,
and as sharp as his teeth.

Hair fiery red,
like blood in the water.
Who would have thought,
this was King Triton's daughter?
A deadly pitchfork in one hand,
Ursula must have taught her.

Her skin full of crust as it starts to decay,
from a million years of ocean corroding it away.
Dirty and dingy, her fin split in half.
She just taunts me with her evil laugh.

To become human she must eat our souls,
and take them wherever she goes.
To stay human she must find love,
so she swims to the surface up above,
looking for a prince to condemn and conquer.
First thing first, she'll make him love her.
Then she'll send his soul to hell.
Beware, the little mermaid, her name is Ariel.

What an imagination you have, Nikki! The poem is great. I'd sure hate to run into that Ariel. Such a pretty name for someone so ugly. :)

Well this has dumped my kids view of Disney out the airlock. Ha. Me kidding. The Cinderella one was fun too. Sounded like a John Carpenter film in the making. But I love the way you took the stereotypical view of the girl and knocked it out of the ball park and we got this bad gal here. Maybe this in all of us, we all have a bad side. But we repress it and filter it, so our mommies will love us. LOL.

hahaha your mommy should love you no matter what, but yea definitely a twist, she kind of got cursed into being evil, the faery god mother tricked her into missing curfew and she had to pay with her soul.

This hub puts a new twist to the saying "Never talk to strange women especially when they are of the mermaid ilk. lol
