Yet breathing – the poem

Updated on October 24, 2013

Deadening end of a tunnel so dark

Winding thoughts of mind lark

Yet breathing ….

Why not it stops to kill the reeling

Shadows of ghosts do jerk

The numbness so much seething!!!!

Claret drops of emotion flow

Fluid were the visions row

Yet breathing….

Why not it ropes in the kneeling

Credos of moist do mark

The crumbles of emotions pining!!!!

Together we used to romance history

Lonely is the present mystery

Deadening is the channel of heart

Winding is the kernel of mind

Lost is time

Frost is life

Yet breathing….

Death so much more been waited

And when this night will end…

And how far is the path to mend…..

A vacuum so much filled with sighs…

Unsaid were the words ….

Frozen among the crystals of pain…

And yet breathing……!!!!!!

Each breath and its taking my life away….!!!

Each breath and still life is living….

How far and how long….

Why griping senses of nonsense mind yet breathing….

Losing the sense of death…to life

It’s a burden to breathe…

And a burden to live…

Eyes are an aching arc….

Destination death…how far and how long?

      Wow, very dramatic and profound as to that slow suffering, we sometimes call life and wondering how much longer we can hang on.

      Up and more and sharing
