Build For Pain

DEATH IS WIND AND I BREATH IT IF SOMEONE FORCES ME 2 OR IF IM TIRED OF LIFE MYSELF.
PAIN + PAIN IS DEATH
MISERY + UNHAPPINESS IS SORROW
SORROW + PAIN IS TEARS
AND I SHED SO MANY FOR PEERS
THAT GOES DOWN THE PATH TO
WHEN DEATH THEY DODGE
TO WHERE SOME STRIKES WITH
VENGENCE AND LEAVE US DEAD IN THE
STREETS OF OUR HEARTS
DEATH SHED NO TEARS OF ITS OWN
BUT IF I HAVE TO HOLD MY BREATH TO KEEP
DEATH AWAY FROM ME I WONT BECAUSE
IM ALREADY BUILT FOR PAIN

I will be knocking at deaths door

I will be knocking on the door
Knock knock knock
Knocking at deaths door
Begging to be let in.

I'm near to deaths door
An overdose
And slit wrists
Along besides me.

Knock knock
Please let me in
deaths door
Please open

Please let me in
I hate my life
I cant cope
I'm desperate
plase let me in

Deaths door has opened
Now I've left it all behind
I'm in deaths world
Im gone
Im free

The Death Of Mr Healy

a man i never met
met his death
fishing in a storm
on a lake near
where i grew up

at the age of ten
i saw us drown
our trashing panic
killed a part of me

i felt our fear
our lungs loaded
struggling fright
our ears exploding

the lake was sixty
something deep
’high as our church
i saw us drown

past the windows
sinking down
Christ in Heaven
to the ground

sixty something i still mourn
the death of Mr Healy.
His death made death be.
The death of Mr Healy
killed a part of me.

  340.     

Life a short span betwixt two deaths

A king once dreamt a pre-dawn weird dream—
A notice from Yama, the Lord of Death:
Along morrow’s setting sun you shall die;
Dawn’s half dreams come true, thought he waking up.

Worried, he weighed for long: how death to beat,
But knowing naught, summoned his minister;
‘The sole escape: beat a hasty retreat
‘From Death on wings of a flying stallion,
‘Leave Death behind trailing too far and tired,
‘Beat too the setting sun, let none o’ertake.’

Feeling assured, he thanked his wise vazeer;
What strange things people do to escape death!
Which, but a tax is— tithe for new bodies,
New garments as Bhagavad-Gita doth say,
But we do strange things to evade tithe too,
Kings and commoners alike are in this.

Taking a windy horse he tore off far
Racing, feeling fatigue, hunger nor thirst,
Yon of his land’s border in balmy woods,
Dripping wet with sweat, horse foaming in mouth;
The sun was nigh close to but not yet set.
Triumphant at last, he reined in his horse
Under a huge banyan tree, catching breath,
Hoping for him and horse heaven’s-hailed rest,
Patting its back, grateful hand on its head,
‘Bravo my boy, ah, we’ve beaten them both—
‘Death and Time both—and more, ah, saved my life,
‘I care for none, Time nor that evil Death,
‘The twain must have been shaken in their faith.’

‘Not yet’, he felt a heavy hand on back,
‘Not shaken in faith, worried sure I was
‘If you would reach here ere the day dies out,
‘But your horse sure deserves richest of praise,
‘It brought you to Death to die destined death.
‘This early dawn I was well nigh worried,
‘If you could reach my chosen place of death,
‘The reason I had to be in your dream.
‘Death does not come to man, time is when right,
‘It’s man that comes, as if drawn to the site.’

Just as a new dawn dawns, like a fresh spring,
The dusk of old age is writ, death and drain,
And ever since life gets spent manoeuvring—
Escapade as if all day— but in vain!

To escape from inevitable death,
Some seek wealth and some health, some name and fame,
But time and death triumph o’er all the same,
Fame is like footprints on the sands of time,
Come dusk and tide, naught is saved to rhyme,
The book of eternity’s a print-less page,
It carries to the end a blank image,
Death from all things born draws an equal faith.

The church bells toll; ask not for whom and why,
They toll for everyone, now or near nigh,
And what is Death but a whim of one’s mind?
Life lives betwixt of two deaths: fore and hind.
___________________________________________________
The story of escape from death is unfolded in blank verse.
The poem is loosely metered in iambic pentameter. Towards
the end depicting the truth of death, the poem shifts to
rhymed lines. Perhaps, the truth of death always rhymes!
