The Tale Of The Sea - Poem by Pinaki Dewan

You stood tall above the ocean,
When your atoms were all drowning,
One by one, two by two, infinite by infinite.

And I heard you call a name,
It was a very definite blame,
But there was hardly any flame
In your eyes, just a little shame.

And nothing seemed to satisfy your disintegration,
Nothing could quench the growling
Of the sea.

And the sea crashed itself into your eyes,
And the flesh severed its ties,
And there was a faint sunrise,
Beyond the lies.

And I heard a very terrible scream,
And I thought it but a dream,
But there was one wispy seam
Upon the skin of my soul.

And I knew it was me,
Who was the sea;
It was me,
Who was you;
It was me,
All along.

And there was a song
Beneath my feet,
And there was something wrong,
But I was done with it.

And nothing seemed to thirst me anymore,
There was no insanity anymore:
Just a door,
Just a door,
Without a spare key.
