To Life Again?

To Life Again?

A Poem by Bhavya Kaushik

A Chōka, with the syllabus count of 5-7 5-7 5-7 5-7-7.


With each drop of rain

That falls on my arid skin.

My body shivers,

More than ever in this cold.

I feel numb and stun,

Empty like a haunted crypt.

Without sensation,

I beg for an easy death

To rest in peace forever.

Empty like a haunted crypt.
Without sensation,
I beg for an easy death
To rest in peace forever.

Love this part, this is so well written and presented.

This is when I call when ''the soul dies'' we may be walking with our body but we are dead inside. we can not wait for the body death that it's seems coming too slowly ... very deep and beautiful written.

Death... perhaps the ultimate destination of human ...
too deep... too intense...

These are not just some lines but there is indeed a deep meaning hidden behind it. .
I especially liked the last line- I beg for an easy death to rest in peace forever...
Keep on writing...
