My Dear Fish
written by: Aurora Kastanias
My dear fish many moons have shined
Upon me and my awkward feelings,
Sun has set over our past shadows
Ebulliently swimming and swirling
In the river once crystal sapphire
Now turbid and irremediably black
I lost you, your golden reflections
Your mute discourse loneliness
Is knocking on ripples to drown me
As I wade through mud questioning
My existence its purpose laughless
Moments as I endure afloat
My tears slowly replenishing
The evaporated rivulets of joy long gone,
Returning rains only pouring gloom
As waters run dry and deserts grow
To cover a land once hosting brilliance
Now governed by darkness swallowing all.
While studying for my BA in Business Administration, at an American University in Rome, I further got enchanted by 19th century existential authors as well as European ‘absurdism’ and the Theatre of the Absurd.
It was only after my MBA that I started writing more seriously, giving space to my true passions. In recent years I have written two existential novels in Italian. In recent months I have started studing astrophysics and writing poems in english, which finally brings me here.
