Tsunami Terror

In Batticaloa, I lay asleep wide awake
In fear
Alarmed by every shake. 
On the bed, under my pillow
On the edge, edge of the aggressor
The violent waves
A paradise by day
At night captivating me, capsizing me to the screams of the grave
I lay asleep wide awake
Echoes of the children’s screams
Been swallowed whole by the wave
Praying at height who will God save
I lay asleep wide awake, in fear of the tsunami
Wondering my fate
Nature has an army no man can ever make
I lay asleep in Batticaloa wide awake

written after my trip to Sri Lanka
