Siren

Two animals I am
Yet I’m my own 
A different animal, one of a kind
So lonely, so admired
Lost in the depths of the sea
I ask  humans to play
But why do they go limp only a minute in?
Why do their eyelids close, and their limbs go stiff
I can stay in the water for hours on end
But nether the less, I cant let them drift
So I take them to the shore
As close as I can go
Some times they wake up, sometimes they don’t
My fins and my hair glisten in the light
And they call me a strange word
Mermaid i think
But I am not
They scream with joy
And my pointy ears perk up
So I dive deep down 
Into the comfort of the sea, and then I’m alone
Only the fish and me
