On the Beach

by Sanku

heaving sea throws one wave
after another.

I feel the shifting sands.
Why tarry?

With nothing to spice up my life
Why tarry?

The waves are calling me
My mind plays again and again
The graphic scenes
Of my honour's death.

The sea, hypnotic, invites me
Feel the joy of riding high !
Ride on my waves!

With one last exhilaration
I shall be free.
