Stillborn

I am that bud which never opened.
A larva that never grew its wings.
I could have been your favorite child,
as I never ever cried.
Sorry it all messed up in the end.
Sorry that at birth, I instead died.

The cord around my neck
That cravat I never tied,
but it coiled like a snake,
which never ate me.

I was blue like a god.
And no pipe, thrust
down my trachea
could turn me red,
as I was already dead.

What remains now is
your empty cradle
unsuckled breast,
and the flowing milk,
like love that flows, that
Ambrosia, that sweet nectar.

Somewhere a baby was born
and a mother died,
leaving the baby hungry,
love deprived.

If your milk helps him thrive,
my conception will not be in vain,
and though stillborn,
I could still ease,
another tiny life's pain.

    Very intense and driving deep into the mind are your great lines here! Akshaya, you are gifted with talent, language and expression and make use of them by submitting such excellent poems. Melancholic notes make better poems and chirping nightingales can`t any more steal our hearts in these hard times... Go ahead.
