Invitation for a Long Night

DEATH, I wait for your embrace

Come hug me tight and squeeze out the little spark running in my veins

What has your foe, life
offered me..
A lone throne of priceless thorns
Sinking in slush,
In the midst of a lush garden
of flowers.

Take me into your arms and sing the song of peace…
Dissolve me in your graves and break my bonds
A few or more tears for one or more reasons, from some or many eyes
And they, dropping on the plate of life would seal the gaps
As life springs new strings, recreate bonds and carry on for its clan.

In all the darkness of the world, I rush to hold your palms
Unload this heavy heart and silence the tremble
In one stroke, erase the scribble of God on the slate of life.

My dear angel of DEATH,
Snoop down from your high skies
This fruit is ripe to be plucked
Skinned and reclothed
Throw me anew on
A new sheet of grass
And a slice of sky for my roof.

I am no coward
To drop my guns and run away
Its just that I am ready to dissolve
And start a fresh leaf.

Death, yours is the pleasure
In inflicting pain
Yours is the pleasure in
Sorting & stripping
Take me as your offering
For tonight.

    1. Ofcourse. Thanks for the concern. You must have noted the positive line over there :: I am no coward….

      It is said of all fears, the fear of death is the greatest.. No one wants to leave this body…


  1. Beautifully expressed. I, also, love these lines by John Donne: ” O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
