Contamination of Water

I filled parched throats
And embraced soiled hides,
Cleansing, hydrating
A necessity to lives.

Creatures slayed creatures amidst my depths,
I washed over wounds, drinking inflictions,
Blood mingled with my muted existence
I became infected by their persecutions. 

Where were you, Brother Fire, I was all alone
Made listless and barren by this self-centered zone.

The End
