Inert Sea

Message In A Bottle


while the earth falls apart
and the birds fly away
creatures that lived above
grab whatever they think is safe

in search of an ark that soars on a cloud
they find the sky empty and dry
drowned in a light of stars that collide
wonder why the ending is such a lie

I am afraid that it may have slipped
from you mind; that the end is a message
placed in a bottle; that was smashed,
long before you wished to throw it on the bow

and it was written by a man
who swayed himself on a fence
with each side facing time
as a result of feeling out of place

after the party; the only thing you remember
is the day you wished of exploring a sea
far beyond the shore of your history;
wreckage everywhere 

you are too flat to be able to sink, in the sand;
you better, wait until the tide runs you over
accept, you are just like a smelly fish
thrown out of the sailor's net, 
where all the rest
were shells, empty and silent

and as you go deeper
there is no abyss 
nor ground where you can hide yourself and mold
your soul maybe forgiven
but you maybe not.

you wake up
in a bottle
dreamt of getting out
and what it seemed
is fallen upon you

and this is your only way to set yourself free
just write the end of your story; 
and leave all the rest,
to have their own ending.

Its color is blue. Its name is Inert Sea. It is the fourth plane  of the sacred city, bathed in the hues of green. They are 13 gates in this plane, all leading to 13 different realms through a passage.
