I Was Dead - Poem by abhimanyu kumar.s

I had my dinner and
Slept around 10 of night
After a couple hour or so
I found myself dead
Ya, I was dead
My body had become motionless
Eyes shut, hands erect
What about my dreams and aims
All gone, all shattered
Man, I was dead
What next?
Possibly burn, bury and ashes
Suddenly I heard someone shouting
Idiot get up! it's 7 of morning
If you want to know the truth
I was sleeping.

    ha ha ha....how does being dead feel like? What if dead people, or their souls, or whatever that remains (if anything does!) , would step next to their bodies and look at themselves? Interesting questions you are raising. (Report) Reply

    Oh NDE! ! ! you are good at building up tension by images...it's dramatic...Sleep has an equalizing effect like Death...nicely done!

    I am uncertain of your intentions of this poem, though I did find it somewhat comedic, especially how you phrased the last two lines. (Report) Reply
