Heart overwhelmed with emotions.
Mind filled with past memories.
But just handful of words,
and ahead lies this vast Ocean.
Every deep word thrown across,
sinks to the depths of the Ocean.
albeit, the hollow words crawl,
along the waves to the shore.
Misleading words of pain, hurt & wrongdoings,
devoid of love, reality and sanity.
Floating on the surface, they pace the lengths,
as they absorb no salt, no water of purity.
Charred in the sun, they crack.
Rusted by the salt, they get vicious.
Swimming across the vast Ocean,
they finally make it to the shore,
ugly, naked and meaningless.
Hey You! Don’t dwell into them, they will disgust you.
don’t touch, they will hurt you.
don’t ask them questions, they will lie to you.
hollow, ephemeral words, let them get past you.
Words of truth, compassion and understanding.
Soaked with Love, Peace and Kindness.
They bathe in the warmth of the Sun,
and are cradled by the Ocean.
Under the sunshine, they glitter.
In the effervescence of salt, they bloom.
Dancing with the currents, heavy with the Truth
they dive deep into the depths of Blue.
The Ocean doesn’t swallow them,
but protects them from cruelty.
Keeps it alive in its womb,
away from the harsh brutality.
No, they won’t come ashore
and won’t play by your feet, pleading.
But look through the empty waves,
that is the sweet calling.
Let go of the ground.
Let go of what meets the eye.
Let’s plunge into the depths.
That’s where the truth lies.
Beyond the spoken words,
you will find the unspoken emotions & feelings.
From the shallows towards the salty depths
Is where lies, the truths & healings.
Mistakes, mistrust, confusion
afloats the surface.
Trust, acceptance, love,
lies deep within.
Let’s dive into the blue depths
of the Ocean, into our hearts.
Let’s find inside together
where lies the real treasure: Love, Love & only Love.
Note: Around a week back, my bestie made me ponder on the shallowness and depths of our hearts. How do we decide if we allow someone to dive deep? How do we accept someone whose shallowness disappoints us? And how do we walk away from the shore without even letting the waves touch us?
Following that she wrote this amazing post (Dwelling by the depths) which in-turn inspired me to write this poem.❤️ ❤️
