gone.

gone.

A Poem by Nisha M.
"

how i imagined death would feel like.

"

...


And it happens 

Unexpectedly

I’m still here 

But nobody ever sees me 


My soul lingers, 

I see blood on my hands 

They’re crying, 

Doctors said they tried 

And then they all cried 


Flicker, flicker 

Lights are dancing

I’m light as a feather 

I hear screams

Of people I recognise

But I don’t know why 


Won’t they speak to me?

I’m here, say something

Won’t mother come to me?

Tell me everything’s fine


And though I loved being alone

I wish somebody’d come and tell me

I’m not on my own

I don’t want to, I won’t 


My body pleading for warmth

They lay me lower, slowly 

I struggled, and wailed

Nobody heard what I said


I gave up, 

Until I realised 

They’re crying for me 

I’m no longer to be 

I am gone,

Mother, father 

I’m scared 


I’m dead

The final thoughts of a person. I believe would be a prayer for the ones left behind. Please forgive me and I love you all so much. Your poem dear Nisha, I liked the honest tone and real feel of life in the words. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

I am sure many of us have pondered on our own death. Whether we would be aware of what was going on or whether it would be like a light switch turning off. Good to see you back posting Nisha M. All good wishes to you.
