Death

Death

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

A late night scrawl.. I don't know what this is....

"
Death... 
I wish it was as easy to die 
as it is to sleep, 
that we could lie down 
and have our souls taken.
 
This mortal shell 
the only thing remaining; 
to be buried and forgotten. 

But some may say 
sleeping ain't easy, 
their sleepless nights spent 
waiting for sleep to come... 

So is it easy to die 
or fall asleep? 
I know neither, 
as I wait 
for sleep 
to come ...

very nicely written.
You are right, at times sleep is not easy to come. There can be nothing more distressing then tossing and turning in bed and hoping to fall asleep.
Death is definitely painful but no one has returned to relate their experience about it.

it's like wanting to escape, to die and just rolling over in the grave, forever...eyes wide open, mind racing to find a reason.

Escape is all we seek, I guess, whether in terms of sleep or death... thank you so much for your wor.. read more
Sleep and death are separated only by the quantum- the eternal variable- the constancy of time. This is an enduring trope which you've managed to put across in few words.

Smartly done, Yumna.

This is unique. Sleep or death? Dying in bed - kill two birds with one stone.
Pure musings that we can all relate to YumnaKay

Sleep is but a mini death with shorter dreams or longer nightmares. I like this, YK. Must have been a long night studying that prompted the write. Good job.

Well thank you ☺
Very interesting piece indeed.
Allot of thoughts going through your head there while writing this it seems.
I am one of those people who doesn't find getting to sleep easy at all, it is super annoying.
In a way it kind of is easy to die when you think about it, so many things can kill you...
Spiders...
bees: if you are allergic
Car accidents, shootings.... anything really.
Anyway great write, thanks for sharing your poem and thoughts with the rest of us.

Very nice piece.I like the connection you made. Some people wish to die in their sleep because they believe its the easiest and painless but how can we know if no one lived to tell.
