Past the graveyard down the road,
Lives or dies a man out cold
Every minute is a burning desire

    Excellent imagery evoking the feelings of what can only be a desperate person seeking any help he can get even if that were to be a graveyard. 'Will any hand rise from the many dead' is powerful. (Report) Reply

    the vagrants try to sleep on the concrete slab of the cemeteries, as those places are more convenient for them to have proper rest and it is the common sight in our part of the world! the idea you had conceived to write this poem is nice...but

    Yet every minute is a burning desire
    For him to feel there's nothing higher!

    as long as the livings have the stomachs, the fire in it will make them to wake up! the stomachs are higher than any else in the world! Congratulations! Ajay! I like your poems! (Report) Reply
