A Drop Of Water Poem by Sreeja Sreedharan

A Drop Of Water

Rating: 5.0

A dropp of water, so sweet,
as tears of happiness, a dropp of honey,
brings joy to the mind.
A dropp of water, so bitter,
as tears of agony, a heart breaking cry,
brings pain to the mind.
A dropp of water, so harmful,
in the form of a flood, a harmful storm,
brings fear to the mind.
A dropp of water, so precious,
for a plant to survive, water in desert
brings comfort to the mind.
A dropp of water, so beautiful,
as a dew drop, a single pearl,
brings expression to the mind.

A look at the chamber - the drops fall - one, two, three, ..... - the counting begins. Half-a-litre to run in exactly four hours. Precise mathematical calculation. The tubing offers no clue - it is filled with water - forever. The side-port of the channel allows access to my vein - reserved only for the nurses with expressionless faces to push some alien fluid into my blood from time to time - it stings, it hurts - but I can't complain - because it all is, purportedly, for my good. It is water that they are infusing, and yet I am not permitted to drink even a dropp - I am dying of thirst. But nobody really seems to care. They don't know that I have overheard them discussing that I am not going to last for long. The drops relentlessly come down - one, two, three, ........ - I lose count - a vacant stare as death closes in.
