Mermaid of the Pond

His eyes were sunlight
Warming her ice cold body
She wanted heat
But was content being frozen
She was the mermaid
In the pond of fear
Scared of going outside
But also scared to live inside
Hiding from the peeking sun
But peeking from the corner under the bush
He was too generous despite her ego
But she didn’t want change
After all, not she but nobody knew
If she belonged to the land of courage
Or the pond of fear.
