To love or to battle
The sunset was amazing,
Yet, standing on the ocean bed
Was a warship
Ready to attack!
It felt like life on Earth had become hell
To fight shall we
To try to survive shall we
Dreams, secrets, longings,
Ambitions, love, great becomings,
Nothing would ever be of purpose!
I wanted to immortalize it on my camera
So bent was I on my purpose
That I saw you not standing nearby
Trying to grasp the sight as well!
Should this warship be between us?
Said I to you
As you made me realize of your presence
Why does it even exist?
Why is it here?
What is it supposed to achieve?
Life would be all love
A stay worth all its due
In a world which gives us not its meaning!
Should this warship be between us
Repeated I again
While looking deep into your eyes,
Losing myself in their depth
So much that I saw not time
As it sped by
Bidding the sun to sleep
And the moon to glow, as gloriously as ever!
I knew not when I was pulled into your warmth
I knew not when the night drew its stars on the dark sky
I knew not when the waves turned rogue enough
As to sink the warship!
I knew nothing,
Other than experiencing the bliss
Of swivelling in between the urges of both our needs!
I knew nothing till the next day,
When I woke up
With the revelation that the Gods
Were finally content!
