When I am no more!

When I am no more! short poem

How would I know, I am not here?

A stagnant period. A sudden fear.

Who will open my window at dawn?

And snooze my alarm when I am gone.

That creaky cupboard and stubborn drawer

Who will take my warm water shower?

Sleepy mirror, would you forget this face?

Will the air suffer? Just in case!

My words, poems, books and its pages

My stifled thoughts, unimagined images

Will they wait for me in vain?

Or stick to someone else’s pain?

Unseen tomorrows, unheard talks

Claps and shivers and smiles and walks

Where will all of it suddenly go?

Replacing life with an empty flow

Nihility is such a curious bliss

When I am no more,

Who would be imagining this?
