Dead Or Alive - Poem by MD SHAHADAT HOSSAIN

Karoline was a so beautiful girl.
She lived out side of Brussels with her husband.
Suddenly her husband was passed away for cardiac arrest.
There was none who can take care of her.
She had to live with her husband's big brother and his wife.
They had a only one girl.
Karoline used to take care of her.
Suddenly she got cardiac attack similar to her husband.
The doctor declared that she was dead.
The family members of her decided to take her in the cemetery.
In the mean time they took her away in the cemetery.
After completing her funeral they left the cemetery.
It was raining cats and dogs.
The cemetery was flooded with rain water.
Some water entered into the coffine.
The soil from the grave yard was disappeared.
Karoline was not dead.
She was alive.
She started to cry.
But her sound was not heard by anyone.
Anyhow she came out from the coffine.
Everything was the same when she was alive.
There was nothing changed.
She thought where she supposed to go.
Everyone of her relatives knew that she was dead.
So she couldn't go to her laws house.
She had a boy friend long long time ago.
Before her death she used to talk and call with him over phone or Facebook.
His name was Patrick.
He used to live at Antwerpen in Belgium.
So she made her mind that she would go there.
When she arrived she was given warm welcome and a big hug.
Patrick was so excited to meet her again.
They went toghter to Patrick's house.
Patrick was already married.
He had a wonderful wife.
He introduced Karoline to her wife called Jasmine.
Jasmine didn't take that as normal matter.
She was little bit angry.
She used to complain why Patrick brought a widow into their house.
Karoline realised that she was not alive any more.
She had no right to live she used to before.
Jasmine forced Patrick to know what's happened with Karoline.
Why she was not living thier house.
Patrick sent someone to bring exact news what's happened with Karoline.
He heard that couple of weeks ago Karoline was died for cardiac attack.
When he heard that news he was stand still.
Jasmine was trembling with horror.
In the mean time Karoline came out from her bed room and tried to make them realise that she was not dead, she was alive.
But they couldn't believe her speech.
That's why Karoline left their house.
She again came to his laws house.
Everything was unchanged.
The same room, the same garden.
The little girl was sleeping at her room.
She was so sick.
Suddenly she was crying for water and telling Karoline's name.
She was excited to hear that.
She realised that she was not for gotten by everyone.
In the mean time the little girl's mother entered into the room.
When she saw Karoline she became senseless and fell on the floor.
Finally Karoline was realised that that world was not perfect place for her.
She left that house.
She jumped under a big lorry.
After doing suicide and become dead, she proved that she was alive.
