Death in Life


Death in Life

I’ve always wondered
What does the phrase
“Death in life” mean? !
Never thought I that
Such a state would
Ever impose itself on my days
And nights, laughter and smiles,
Death in life is by all means:
To laugh from the throat
And the heart is not
Sharing the joy, but
Shedding tears that hurt,
To eat and enjoy food not,
To swallow it just to live,
To see the one you love,
But living the state of being unable to see,
To feel his coming near, yet
Giving your senses the order not
To feel that lovely feeling of his being near,
To avoid looking in the eyes
For fear tears would
Jump on the cheeks,
Death in life is the result
Of suffering; it is what an innocent
Spontaneous faithful heart
Feels after the collapse of dreams.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
