A Poem by Tazeen Ahmed

A word chased by a shrill accent,

Scaled in silent surroundings; in medicated scent.

Alleged before them like a filial obligation,

Their eyes would wade in and ears would wage as indicted invasions.

 Commencing twilight and dawning, he bred covertly gratified,

This rich lad bristled with voracity; times cast him an ideal, earnestly pacified.

The ailment made him considerate and altruistic; the wind wrought his wisdom,

 Like an ardent martyr, soon his steps could be seen stalking optimism.

But, innocently ignorant of waning away with the floods of Lord’s melancholy drain.

 ***

 

As the heart beat quashed into a screeching line,

More blubbing and drooping reverberations would gush through the lonely dine.

The father, for the first time felt tears trickling reluctantly,

At bay, his eyes gawked down; his head glared the ceilings at night allegedly .

***

 

He couldn’t abate till the chap’s face could be at last confronted,

The hysterical mind blazed at the glow of a salesman he repented.

“Give me the finest branded garb

For I have to lay my son on his death crib…

Show me the most expensive burial garment

For I have to gift my son his last endowment…”

Only the imaginings of horrendous agony conquered his consciousness ,

 

Until he played the world with dead breath that the world could perceive nor harness.

***

Author's Note

Tazeen Ahmed
This is an imaginative prose of a young lad who's suffering from cancer. He is rich and whatever he wishes comes forth him as he is unaware of dying within a few days. The disease makes him realize a lot about life.
So, his time comes and he dies. His father's sorrow is expressed and how he uncontrollably approaches a shopkeeper demanding the best shroud...

The sadness, the tragedy, of your poem really hits home.. if that is your object. Your language jumps barriers, vocabulary appropriate and more than powerful.

However, i just have to add this. In your Author's note, you explain the meaning of your post. Why? Perhaps, just perhaps, if you'd diluted the literary cleverness of your writing, the meaning would have stroked emotions even more. Death is raw enough without being overly executed.

However, your work is academically excellent..

Thank you Kanishka! :)
Sobering. We take so for granted the ideal that the young should out live the old and that if someone is younger, surely they will outlive you. Very good write, well executed. Thank you!

Thank you so much for the worthy review:)
Everyone reacts differently to death and employs personal coping mechanisms for grief. Your sober write conveys both perspectives; one from the son and another from the father - well written! :-)
