What lies beneath

What lies beneath

the sapphire expanse
riddles beneath a sky
painted fair

through cerulean eyes
we dive into the depths
of a distant stare

where tears share
flavour with the howl
of a primordial storm

and rarefied desires
suffocate beneath the
archipelago of forgotten
forms

how many unanswered
prayers layer the abyssal
bed?

for every shipwreck in
a bottle there’s a message
that couldn’t fit

where the spectre’s of pelagic
pathfinders wade through
voluminous azure

the undying prisoners drown
for entirety amidst a pitch
and opalescent allure
