Kiara Vestigium


There is a call inside me
Screaming to be heard
Trying to reach my mind
But I stifle it


It breaks to the surface
Again and again
Like a drowning man
In his fight of death


I would be obsessed
By that call, with that thought
So I shut my ears
To not hear it's screams


May it sink - no problem
But then I change my mind
It mustn't sink!
I couldn't allow that


Gradually it gives up
Screams becoming whispers
Slowly sinking down
Into dark, black water


Springing into the cold
Into the blackness
Of chilling water
What else could I have done?


In the last moment
I catch it's hand
Saving it from the hungry floods
Of deepest oblivion
