Her Death Wish

Her Death Wish long poem

She grew up in a big family
With a starry dream in her eyes
There was nothing special in her dream
Only her dreams were not for her

In the vagaries of life
Her dream could not be fulfilled
she changed her perception
So that some of her dreams could be achieved

She too faced ups and downs in life
Like all others do
She also erred many times
To err is human she knew

Life was a challenge for her
She loved accepting the challenges thrown at her
She never regretted, never looked back
she believed life can’t be lived in reverse gear

Friends she had many
Enemies she hardly had any
Life was not easy for her
she never complained
she knew life is not fair for so many

In the world of men
She worked like a man
Yet she was proud that
She was born a woman

She lived life on her own terms
Taking each day as it came to her
Each morning she accepted as Lord’s another blessing
She was proud to have faced the challenges of life
She never complained living each day without any strife

Soon It was the sunset of her life
She died a death of solitude
She was happily ready to go
knowing she always had that fortitude

Though she had never wished anything for herself
Yet she was a human after all
She too had human weaknesses
she too had an intense death wish

her only wish was that……..
no she never wished to be remembered
She wished only to be missed

“no she never wished to be remembered
She wished only to be missed”
A master peace of emotion. A very good simple poem on life

Randall Smith

She died a death of solitude. That is a lonely person. She wished to be missed. If not remember then not to be missed. I really feel sorry for this person, locked into her own shell and world. But well written

Death In Exile

Death In Exile short poem

He had pulled in many springs but failed to find a heaven. Asked not to look away. In absences he tried to enter the wounds again. An aboriginal pain flies over my shoulder. A spiritual failure of mankind? Counting unctuously

Upon Her Desire

Upon Her Desire short poem

Upon my visiting a steep rocky hill, I saw her- strange, candid and very simple; Falling apart from the lip-stick beauty; From insane odors; from the tog’s divinity – A natural doll, she’s a spirited jill. The rustic cast was

An Absurd Wish

I once had two sparkling eyes full of hopes, But the familiar forces made them blind. They made sure to check on my survival frequently, But that was just to butcher my innocence. I cried out loud for help every

Death Of A Godman

I have agreed to cede an unwritten moon in a killing frenzy, for a chequered spirituality. Now visitation will start ravishing the light at dawn. The grievers will assemble for a final scoop of dust. Forgive my star, for a

Death And Vision

Death And Vision short poem

The doubters will cross the coals after the raid. Apology will not be in attendance. Sitting on the throne of cold blooded assassination, do you think justice demands the revenge? Whom you are killing, the body or the spirit? Heads
