Publishing this now, as I didn't make it on time for yesterday daily prompt... welp, at least I didn't end up drowning in my own writing, didn't I?

Her voice.

Her voice. Her voice pulls him in.

A pull so compelling he feels compelled to comply with.

She waits for him among the waves. Further and further, she swims.

"Wait for me," he says. Then, louder: "Wait for me!"

She whirls around and waves at him.

Naked, porcelain flesh.

The sight of a pearl, peering out on the world from her shell, lies before him.

Dark hair descends like waves on her shoulder blades.

Ocean eyes. Those ocean eyes - he could drown in the ocean inside of her eyes.

The hint of a smile appears on her coral-red lips. Did he say that out loud?

"You will."

Air. He's running out of air.

Air. Gasping for air, only to be dragged down once again.

Blood. Blood in the water. Blood on her teeth, blood on her hands. He whimpers.

"Hush, pretty boy," she leans in for a kiss.

"Hush, pretty boy," she leans in for a kiss. "Drown in me. Close your eyes, and bathe in these deep waters.

"Hush, pretty boy," she leans in for a kiss. "Drown in me. Close your eyes, and bathe in these deep waters. I will hold on to you; I won't let you drown."

Bodies.

Bodies. Bodies colliding against each other.

Bodies. Bodies colliding against each other. He tastes the sea on her lips. She scrubs the sand on his skin.

He's falling.

He's falling. The Wise Sirens had taught her humans should be enticed.

He's falling. The Wise Sirens had taught her humans should be enticed. Seduced. Amused. Aroused.

Lured in little by little, in a trap made of whispered promises of love, because humans are the loneliest creatures in the world.

Promises fated never to be kept

Woe betide the traitor siren who falls in love with a human, for she is to doom herself to loneliness too.

He's falling.

People had told him love at first sight couldn't - didn't - exist. They must have been lying all along. Heart hardened by envy, they had to have lied.

He's falling. He's breathless.

He's falling. He's breathless. He's drowning in love.

She is the one. He knows, as she drags him down,

She is the one. He knows, as she drags him down, she is the one.

He is falling.

'She will hold on to me.'

He is drowning.

'She won't let me drown.'

She holds on to him, hands all over him.

"Let go, boy. Stop resisting. Breathe; drown in me. I'll take care of you."

He breathes.

He breathes. He lets go.

He breathes. He lets go. He melts in her hands.

Her eyes turn the foggy shade of thunderstorms.

She roars.

She is the one.

She is the one. She is the one,

She is the one. She is the one, she was the one...

She is the one to feast on his broken heart.

She is the one to feast on his broken heart. She is the one who leaves him to drown.
