In The Arm Of Neptune - Poem by fera nugroho

at the end of the dawn, a young  lascivious ship was found
surrendered completely into the hands of the aging neptune
relinquished her body to his tidal desire

she was just like the rich coquettish argosy
who fell in the hand of  the legendary black beard
raped, robbed, abused and tortured to death
bled from the jib to the stern
how could she fight back the king of the ocean?
the moon wept for her
the dark cloud mourned even more
watched her soul dying
submerged in his old raging heart

under the heaven's eyes...

neptune subdued her life by the haughty trident and sent her up in flame
how could nobody hear his thundering laugh?
that echoed his gratification to the ocean's roar
the wind dissipated her  lamentation
and overwhelmed her moan

together they smashed the ship with a storm out of the east
the king of the sea dragged her body down in to his cold private chamber
and embraced her for eternity...
