When the stakes are high

When the stakes are high

Mind travelled

Through the rising tides

Pregnant waves

Spilling forth

Seaweeds and plankton gushing

Like cry from a heart

 

To depart

From object of love

Like arrow

Piercing side

Forgotten the unwed bride

Widow of morrow

 

The sorrow

It wells in the soul

No control

Over tears

They spell out our random fears

When the stakes are high

 

Reading of the poem:
