The Living Death


Intrepid desires,

A solitary union,

Touch of the sky.

Fabled in thy heart

Burns a lonely sorrow.

To glee, and thy life,

Hopes, from me, you borrow……

The storm yonder

We sink in boat of life,

Domination, Love, Power……

Aloft a lonely battleground.

Jury is divided,

Verdict is clear.

To thee, life divine…..

Resilience submits

in tranquil sorrow.

An unspoken whisper,

An unopened gift

An invisible kiss

Wishes laid dry……….

  1. Oxymoron! Nicely done!


  2. It’s really difficult to write a reply when we read a poem.word…space…absence of words..all these make a poem & the message multilateral.We come closer to feelings & read beyond the words your thought roaming the universe from end to end…..& couldn’t find a place to rest. with shadow following & spirit preceding .
    a good small poem …..seeking things beyond your understanding… good one.
