Every drop of water longs for the ocean.
Even lakes secretly wish to escape
the strong embrace of earth through erosion.
Some humans, though only 70% water,
act like desperate droplets of the sea
that let dams break and glasses shatter.
They get trapped in trenches of despair
that bogs and stagnates their sincerest efforts
of secreting steaming sweat and salty tears.
Then, they slowly wallow in turbid insanity
offers a seemingly sound and simple solution:
“Slash your veins. Simulate a scarlet sea.”
