death raced past you


Slow and steady…
Slow it was. Steady ?
Waiting near the finish line…
Few minutes left.
I had a deadline to meet
Death, the task master
Never cared much…
For unfulfilled desire…
Teary eyed I pleaded for
A few moments.
The horizon didn’t brighten
With your silhouette …
Bruised hope, tired eyes
Flickering desire…

Death now a much-needed sedative
Descended and lulled me to eternal rest
Nursed the vacant eyes and the incised heart
Relaxed the final fluttering of half-dead hope

Death raced before you
And said I do...
Walking down the aisle
I crushed my body, soul and heart
and with them you...
You were and are still just the best man...


Death didn’t part us…
Just snapped the last strings of hope of
“till death do part us”

hey rohit,
its about love lost ya... how we believe in happy endings and we believe love will end in walking down the aisle..etc...
but hopes r crushed and love loses the race to death...
hope this is sufficient..
keep blogging.
cheers
