English Poetry

Locked inside a room
The four walls contracting in gloom
Erasing the suffering and sensations
Cutting off the cord of worldly tensions.
The light is paling away into infinity
The days coming to an end;

Flashes of childhood come rushing back
Mother’s lullaby’s, father’s advice
Fights with brothers, then broken ties
A tear slides by in mind’s eye.
Wonderful world creates memories many
In a minute life turns into a tragedy

Pictures remain of things that could have been
So much love to spread so much unseen
Dreams and aspirations are now a mirage
Colors depart – it’s blackness at large.
Heart pumps in the final surge of blood
Limbs inch waiting for their turn

The red flow halts – the muscles twinge
Brain cells slog to power the body
The heart crawls towards slumber
Last breath departs unnoticed
Death captures the body.
Pearly shadow of the soul
Escapes the flesh and bone

Inert human corpse lies on the floor.
The product of God’s innovation
Has touched its expiry date,
It will now head to heaven or hell
Whichever one is written in fate.
Locked inside a room
The four walls contracting in gloom

Luminosity gives way to doom.
The windows are closing
The angels are surging
If wishes were horses,
Life would be galloping
In the battle of life and death
The latter wins the strife.

The angels pray for a passage sound
They tug at the curtain, pulling
The heavy fabric to the beat of weeping drum
One smooth stroke, and –
… “The Final Curtain Is Down” …
Meet you again in God’s own town.
