Oxygen turned suffocating, inhales pollution
Flatness of water, I gulp poison
And crunches of rusted metal
Are nutrients and minerals;
T’was simply a plead of soft bread.
Drowned by nothingness, soul reaching out
For something, manifesting life
Wishing for warmth
From staunch arm of authenticity.
All bodies surviving scorching heat
Flashfloods, winters and sun.
Turned into an armor,
As knight go expeditions -
Chance of coming back, in
One piece always far-fetched.
Dwelling on bottomless loop,
Silence is booming, deafening.
Wailing no use, as of heart
Pleading for love, useless
Desperation for attention, yet this I cried.
Being cold, freezes blood
At darkness, eyes are safe from direct
Sunlight – disappearing at night
Then alone with the moon – ain’t enough
To fill the huge hollow I, myself,
Made from mending in shadows.
