The Death challenged Life and the Life bows down: leaves the Body and the Soul flies away

The room so dark, black and silent,

Seemed the night’s fighting with the empty

Rooms of thought, persistence and prevalence,

As the depth enmeshed sufferings and pains.

The palette of darkness, poised and poisoned;

I lit the candle with the friction of matchstick,

In a fraction of second, the moment on the fulcrum---

The room looked glorified, bright and better.

The sigh of relief relaxed on my breathes,

My heart counted each and every beat,

The coldness of the stress runs through my spine,

My eyes shone in light. I still fight. And I strive.

I heard the drums of death drooling,

And I shut my eyes to recover,

I sense the reconciliation of my soul and brain,

No urge, no wish, no heart or pain.

Salty droplets adore my eyes,

I want to cry, shout and scream...

I found the candle melting wax,

Light above, beneath is the dark,

I stared to see the melting truth...

Hot, liquefied watery flows,

Hardened by the life and flaws,

Colour or colourless contoured life,

My soul left me, just body was alive.

“‘I’ die... ‘I’ die...”, I prayed within me.

My mourning moan steals my faith,

I carry the blood and germ – ‘’Society’’

And I was left alone on the wheelchair of time,

Awaiting for a hand to travel helpless.

Friend, how do you do it?? There is such a power in the flow which you produce with your words, that readers have no options, than to surrender themselves to the flow. Magnetic narration, enigmatic description and a humble salute to your talent.

Love it. You create pictures in the minds of your readers with words such as, the room so dark and silent. It immediately sets the atmosphere/pace of the poem.
Well done

Deep, strong and weighty words. Sink to the soul. The theme of despair is evident. So are a great poet.
