the pain had vanished.... the heart so numb
the sighs were hollow like the drowning sun...
my hand stretched out for a gasp of life
shadows disappearing in the morning light.......

i strained so hard for the final look...
tears all blinding my gaze of u...
is this the end i ask myself
where was i when life passed me by
it all flashed past like a blaze of light....

it seemed a blur n so it was..
a moment to end that seemed so far....


P.S : i knw i promised part 2 to my previous post n i shall keep up my word..till then jus few words which tumbled out when i read the plight of a young girl who met her end quite unexpectedly.... maybe this was how she felt...

The poem goes so deep... Really moving and tragic.. How well you have captured those last few poignant moments!

Adisha said...

I could imagine someone's heart feeling all the above ... so sad, so touching ... I wish that girl peace in her afterlife !!

Wanda said...

You have written such touching thoughts... The lines...

"where was I when life passed me by"
"a moment to end that seemed so far"

...say so much...and are so true...we all should be "present" in our daily life...mind and body...be aware of your moments...you don't get them back.
