The River Emerald -2

Written by: ashek rahaman

It flows within 
my soul
Descends from 
my memories
Deja vu 
Dream within a dream 
subtle numbness 
relentless presence 
Of Muffled screams  
The discarded adoration 
Agony of the undeserved 
Salvation of the unforgiven
It’s something my eyes have seen
Embraced by dense forest
The sky marveled with soft cloud 
Earth, Heaven- in between 
It’s something my eyes have seen
Deep, intense green 
Relief, Release, for the tortured soul
The River Emerald
It flows within
