Forever I’ve lived
keeping a tranquil façade.
Witnessing with every rise and ebb
a turn of incidents, with shrewd eyes.
For I have in me the silence of millenniums.
The secrets, which disappear at the ground
still lay sleeping in my core.
I’ve heard sighs of souls as the water choked the insides.
I’ve seen the last flickers of hope
as they extinguished with soundless cries.
Untold stories, haunting dreams which
disappeared with their closing eyes.
In my infinite stretch
I contain the turbulence of my blood tainted blues.
As I hear the resonated cries of the boat
which could never make it to the shore.
I have captured shimmering snapshots
of celestial conspiracies,
which turn a raindrop pearl
and render the rest insignificant,
as I turned them saline.
Responsible for countless demises, guilty I stand.
But left choice-less,
I oblige to Nature’s behest.
