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.

Vividly captivating the virtualy empire you do let the people know the different form of style employed in writing. Specially counting exact sound syllabes studding them in their proper place with a beautiful message is really time consuming art. Thank keep it with your shivering hands.....
Have a nice day!

Thanks for the author's note, I learned something this day.

When we only feel the downpour in every moment of our lives, isn't it better to rest in peace forever? To some, it is believed that there's a life after death. Ours today is just temporary, so isn't it better if we face death so that we'll face the real life? In there, there would be no sadness, rain, tears, and pain....

Nice piece, great poet!
