There's a transparent ocean in your eyes. So many things left unsaid tossed in the waves as I steal glances, always afraid of touching what lies in the dark, dangerous and foreboding.
My anxiety sits in a corner. It reminds me that there's a good reason to be wary because I am the only one who ends up getting hurt when it comes to you.
I have never known the address of your heart, even though it shares the same street as mine. Your house is not in the same realm of existence and I cannot visit or walk through the garden because it is always closed to me. Full of poisonous plants and predatory creatures who would hunt me for sport, the prey creature that I have become.
It seems that I have forgotten I used to be a lion. When did I discard my claws and fangs? Where did I misplace the roar that would make the bravest hunter shake in his dungarees, running for sanctuary?
I wasn't expecting such an agile visit from all of you; to greet your ¹sugarcoated senses with a pleasant welcome is such a ²beguiling treat to attract someone with. How a simple ³braggadocio has never impressed someone too!
I just wanted to write this out because of the never-ending fatalities that happen all around the pristine rivers. Why? Why must your senses go too far to a point where a carnivorous instinct has fooled you too? Are you desperate enough to quench your active, yet ⁴inappeasable tastes?
What made you and your fellow men that way? To victimize the innocents, fleeing to the ⁵aphotic zones of the ⁶maritime waters, is such a dreadful act that serves justice to the affected! Must the waters now be yours? Isn't freedom applicable to everyone?
I write this to give thee a sign that these vast stretches of water are not your land, and not your straight-forward rights to claim and manipulate the living matter that dwells here as their own homes too.
Please, refrain from your horrid acts and start approving for a more humane life united to the dwelling creatures of the diverse waters.
Sincerely, A ⁷cenotaph's heed . . . -- SUMMARY --
