Beyond The Oceans Set To Sail... - Poem by Lama Abbas

Beyond the oceans...
Set to sail...!
My soul is lost to an unknown land...!

It screams...
It weeps...
My sleepless nights to help...

My anchor hooked to shores...
Left calm oceans behind...
What if stillness too awaits...ever after
My soul for sake...soulless in loneliness and darkness...

What if I hit to seas...
And it's clamoring rage... To find my soul, my friend no more...

My fears and anxiety ever grow...
Oceans apart...
He calls his love his life...

I by a haunted vision held back to earth's promises...
Life's ties...!
Holy rituals...!
Night's dark shadow casting upon cold body, hollow...
Moon's faint image grows over the dark sea, over my dumbness, heartlessness
Mourning over my soul's death...
