The Denouement

Poem By NAYANIKA DEY

I sensed myself sinking down
Culminating the stuccoes of existence
Crossing denouements of mortality
Obeying the laws of life's caducity
And defying the clusters of earthly brevity.
My nostrils perceived the essence
Beyond the sod
My ears apprehended the sounds
Of heavy metal spades
And my eyes saw the quietus
When the granules of clods broke
And made space for me
To lie amongst them
While my body felt the ache
When I was being gently graved.

I roused to realize
That my sweven
Toured me down
To the afterlife lane
To forgraith me
For the next realm of existence.

Comments about The Denouement

Hi Nayanika, A poem on the eternal truth; the ultimate truth of life: : DEATH! Very profound write with a matching choice of vocabulary. Loved reading, though, on one or two occasions, I had to refer to dictionary.. A marvelous ten for this lovely but poignant poem; I would another 10 for the following lines: I roused to realize That my sweven Toured me down To the afterlife lane To forgraith me For the next realm of existence. -unnikrishnan

The bilboes that wait to bangle the innocents,
Hauling them down the barbed streets,

You are my heart's home,
You are those reborn rays of light,
Even amidst darkness that roam.
You are the fragrant filled breath,

It is as ardent as a ruby
And nonpareil as a gold,
Decked with keloids like pearls
It is a pure treasure trove,

Pain

I am addicted to pain,
For they say,
After every night,
There is a day,

Our Shadows And Sighs

Of all

Wanted to say
And all that
