"Unquenched Thirst"

Gulping down the jugs of water
She drains the wells,
Like an ardent absorber
She dies to live but her soul is dispersed
Accursed slave of an unquenched thirst


Her artfully tangled hair tell a grim story
Rain sprinkles on her hands
But cannot resurrect the asian skin's glory
Her quivering parched lips? A visible sign of fear!
Fear of sheer loneliness and losing the dears


Once she was a passionate river of love
Now her abandoned heart is a land unloved
Her spirit thirsts for them,
She cries sand-tears and begs the hideous leviathan
Who laughs at her for being deserted by her sons


There's a meek flower of hope swaying in her mind
She drinks the starry dreams to keep herself blind
Embracing the pain of agonizing thirst
She thinks if her barren soul will ever bear fruit?
Will this thirst ever be quenched?
remain an eternal dispute?
