The Shore

I was a restless soul

rampant and uncontrolled,

no boundaries to stop

no barriers to withhold.

My soul wandered

in search for repose

but lost amidst

the crowd full of woes.

You came as a calm

wave of breeze,

and made my restive

soul to freeze.

You calmed me the way

sea waves quench

the thirsty shore.

But alas, I was a

mere sandcastle

shattered by your roar.

—Ritu Raj
