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.
