stagnant

stagnant

A Poem by Deepshikha
"

reflection.

"
i am
stagnant water--
in a dark cove,
surrounded by ancient, wise guardians,
waiting under rolling waves of fog,
nestled between years of fallen foliage.

i am 
dark and murky,
still waters covered in a blanket of green
--a blanket thick and deep,
a shroud stitched of decay.

i do not know
how far the waters go
--nor am i willing to try.
the heavy stench of murkiness
pervades my body
and i am unwilling to take a chance.

i am
more still than the earth,
more sheltered than a child;
i am
darkness liquefied,
death materialized;
if you fall in, you may never come out.

nothing stirs,
nothing moves,
anything that may come will be lost--

drowned--
gone--
taken by 
still, 
murky, 
stagnant waters.
