Misfortune

The inflated vessel loses sight of the shore

Frolicking with the waves;

Petulant dance guided by the malefic stars

Night descends on the serpentine cadence

Defiant sky reverberates with diabolic chants

Revealing the secrets of treacherous destination

A raging horizon spews thunderbolt warnings

Burdened with worldly jewels by gouging insatiably

This undulating journey of delirium

Through liquid labyrinth, guided by blurring planets

There’s no strength to anchor itself

Decaying wood wakes up offensively

Foul wind dances with devilish fervour

A vessel imprisoned by fathomless misfortune
