Call

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
