Many a times, at the dead of night,
I wake up with an alien thirst;
choking me from within.
With uncertain sleepy steps, I try
to reach out into the dark, groping my way.
But then , I find myself getting drowned.
all around me its only water, everywhere.
No trace of my possessions
or my loved ones to pull me up.
I try to scream for help but
a strange sound escapes my parched throat.
I give up, knowing it's futile to fight
the mass of water swirling around me
in slow but steady circles.
they take me deep inside, slowly into the
unknown, with every passing moment.
I drown,slowly and surely,
still remaining thirsty.
