Distant shadow of life – a poem
Shying away from life
And a deadening silence to encase,
Retiring away from heart
Trails of shadowy night yet embrace.
Embarrassing are the efforts
Never mind the knockings not replied,
So meaningless are the calls
Never ending are the mails returned.
Time and age never await us
Query of useless topics gathered dust,
Heart and sleep in an hourglass
Lousy wishes of many forgotten dusk.
How, why, where, when, what and whys…
So you wish to forget these links?
A trail of fading lineages you now despise
I will fade away with the time brinks.
Silence can blast the head off
And the emptiness can sure rip the earth apart,
The blank buzzing have crashed roof
A table of candle light dinner burnt down aghast.
Emotions to be buried deep
Cradle of hollow ‘Hi and Bye’ to rise,
Cremation of love rejoiced RIP
Saddles of sorrows insincere surmise.
Winged relations remote nuisance
And pretense of life mocking road shows,
Synthetic flowers to ornate cuisine
Senses since not learnt for shocking arrows.
Then… death be it
Not suitable for the so called life ahead,
Then… silence be it
Not apposite anymore for this world.
Heart is some dead echoes,
Lost breathe of a drive
Horizon is an end of ethos.
No more disturbances
Agree to resign useless burden,
A numb flow of nuances
Quit from life all of a sudden.
Not a drop of tear
And the world moves on and on,
Not a choice so sheer
But I promise to walk as your passion.
A passion of
Silence and distance,
Let it be death then….
And shadow of life erased with no pretence.
