If I dissolve into the sea, as it calls to an eternal slumber, 

Let my soul be carried by its waves, to a cosmos of forgotten truths.  

If I drown into its mystical depths to join the relics deep below 

Let my screams be damped into whispers by its turbulence, 

Let the ripples of my tears write your name, again and again.  

If, silently, I walk into these waters and be swallowed

Like the burning sun, only to extinguish forever, 

Would you care? Oh! Would you care? 

-Iflah Laraib
