When death calls..

Brandished guns
Can’t manage fear
For I’ve forbid life
To hold me close
When death calls

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

      I don’t fear death.. neither do I want life to cling on to me when death comes 🙂 Yeah, its a different philosophy mine. Glad you like it.

    • @ Jae Rose,

      Thank you 🙂 Glad that you liked it. I hadn’t thought of that angle, but like they say, to the reader, our words may convey something entirely different..!

    • @ Old Egg,

      Yes, the decision would be tough, but at some time, these words do ring through a mind I think..! Glad you liked it!

  1. Lovely poem, you don’t seem afraid of death, quite brave of you….. wondeful poem, wow ‘loved the lines ‘i forbid life to hold me close’

    • @ Radhika,

      I find it quite difficult to not be afraid, but there comes a time when life seems more scary than death I think. Glad you loved it!

  3. Hmmmm…… I guess that’s a sensible thing to do “…forbid life//To hold me close”. After all, what is the point of clinging on to something which will leave you eventually. An innovative use of the three words 😀 Cheers

    • @ Chhavi,

      Exactly 🙂 We do want to live longer so we can have more fun on earth, but we do all have to go off eventually 😀

    • @ Jingle,

      No no, both are old itself 😀 The template is new thats all. 😉 glad you liked it.

      Ji, are you sure you commented at the right poem? 😉 This is a 5 line gogyohka, not a haiku. 😀
