The Mermaid’s Sister

She had fought hard against the waves, but to no avail.  Her body floated atop the sea; bone weary, battered and bruised.  Her night dress clung to her beaten form, the cotton transparent as the sea swallowed its fibres.  Her heart ached in the solitude of her surroundings as the water drowned out her cries.  Her tears dissolving in their watery grave, lost forever, sinking with her heart.  Her body was now a lifeless form, weightless and forgotten.  She called for her, whispered her name over and over, closer than she had ever been, an eternity still between.
