a poem

Upon the vestiges of a once sunken lake
A seascape draped in fate
Shakes, breaks
The islet creates, Atlantis awaits
Gods retreat and mortal power inflates
Hollow virtues once fueled by excess
Come full circle to arrive at the paradox
And soon parted by the sea, mentality in siege
Along with prestige, they leave
A sunny morn reborn extreme
Sinks like a shallow dream
Its parables lost in the dust of fallen civilizations
Empires once…
