Call me Calypso

Call me Calypso the sea nymph.
Fiercely loyal and supportive.
In love with the moon.
In search for the hero.
Willing to pay the price for the choices I make.
The goodness within me shines thru.

As punishment, imprisonment.
I am trapped.
Here in a beautiful world all my own.
My Refuge is my child.
I am Queen here.
There is joy, peace, and beauty.
I am allowed visitors.
I am allowed to have short love stories.
I have had immense happiness.
It is a paradise.
It is a good life.
I only wish to share it.

This is where the punishment lies.
Time.
There is so much of it here.
Still no long love story to be shared.
The universe sends me someone I could love.
But never for too long.
I am to stand tall and strong.
I am to continue.
Unable to break.
Unable to wither.

I have so much.
I need for nothing.
Still there is a void.
So much time to grieve the love I have lost.
Feeling the desire to be caressed by the next one I am to loose.
It is my only escape.

Is it better to have loved and lost?
My answer remains - YES
Tho it becomes harder to answer
Knowing that to Love and Lose is not a question.
It is a prophecy.
Knowing that heros are few and far between.
Knowing the long waits ahead until this heart is to be calmed,
Until these lips are to be kissed, and this body held.

Could I love again as intensely as I loved you?
Perhaps not. Never in the same way.
My legacy is to love.
So many different types.
My love has levels. Limitless depths.
Each current different.
Like my home, The Sea.
It is my blessing and my curse.
A small amount of love from me can surpass the amounts you have ever been given
If you have the right character.
If you are chosen to find my island.
I can restore you to health and bring you peace.
I can pour myself into you knowing that I will have to let you go.
Knowing that there is no immortal love to be mine.

So here I await... a hero.

LOL, that is very cute Frank... What would you desire to feel, I wonder? Perhaps you can let your poetry tell me...

Just make sure I don't get attacked by one of your psychos! I will only take attacks of a certain nature from those I choose... Hahaha...

This was beautiful. This shows that immortality can be a blessing and a curse at the same time. Thumbs up for awesomeness!
