Vanish - A Poetry

Its late and despite my best efforts, I am unable to sleep. So here I am writing some stuff just to kill some time and so that I can fall asleep.


I'm suddenly aware.
Awake like never before.
I know that I have become
an apparition,

I have become
transparent, like
a crystal bowl.
Withering like
a flower, I am
blackened at the edges.

Surely there is a
bloom coming soon,
This flower has
reached its grave,

I can't seem to understand,
the soft vagaries of my
short life.
Things I could grasp
are now behind a veil.
Black and shiny,
they wink at me from
beyond. They always move away as I try to grab them

I am like a tiny
blue rock,
at the shores,
on the sand.
The waves come
and leave.........

maybe I should leave too,
like a ship, set sail,
I'll move towards the
leaping dolphins,
the ends of the world.

The evening approaching
with the heavy scent of
jasmine and solitude.
In this voyage against the wind,
slowly I'll begin to
postulate, to connive,
to explore the
noble nothings of
lands left behind.

I shall scan the horizon now,
with a spyglass made of silver,
seeking, as
always, an explanation for
the noise I have left behind.

I connected with the rock at the shore with waves. Water in motion has always been a gravitational force to me.
