NOT TODAY..!!!

Poetry By: Pratibha
Poetry



This is a poem based on the topic chosen for me by MA.

This is about a husband who used to be so busy in his career and work that he did not answer his cell phone one day when his wife called him urgently while she was all alone and was a labor pain. He could not reach on time and she died.

Since that day every day and evey night, he could hear her screaming with pain and he could never forgive himself and finally decides to take his own life....and get rid of this mental trauma...

he realised that family and love is way more important than damn career and money and reputation and all luxuries....but alas it was so late....

In this poem he is requesting those memories not to haunt him today because today he is going to close this chapter once and for all...

Please go away...please please leave me alone...

Please let me sleep today...Please do not remind me of her today...

Please do not torment me today...

Not today please...Not today...

I deserve this, I know...

I should have listened to her...loved her...cared for her and protected her...

She trusted me and I let her down...

She died...a painful death because of my carelessness...

Oh GOD! Please forgive me today...just for today...and take me away from this world...

Away from her memories, from her helplessness, her painful cries...
