In love for eternity

Death was very young. Like everyday, he draped his black cloak and left home. He had to meet the girl by the river. It was her last day on earth. When he approached , she was playing with the water. Her laughter was like a sweet melody. He floated towards her like a wind. Suddenly she turned back and smiled at him. He stopped in his track. That moment something broke inside his heart and he fell in love for eternity. He hugged her tight with over pouring emotions. She gave him a friendly embrace and left the world. Since then, each life Death took reminded him of her. Now Death is the first to weep in every death.

Silent you weep

You stay silent and wide awake.
Under the starless roof
You keep wondering,”what went wrong?”
You no longer know why your eyes are wet.
The tears flow down;down to your heart.
No one ever sees,what’s beneath your laugh,
how you hide your pain?
You don’t know why you are sad,
You are a burning charcoal without smoke.
And you stay silent
And wide awake
Your vision is blurred.
With a heavy chest,
you can hardly breathe.
When your thoughts explode,
you want to scream.
But you struggle to weep.
Then he reaches out,
Imbibes your pain
Small kiss on eye lid,
That’s all you need.
You stay silent,
and wide awake.
In his arms.
That’s all you need.
