Dead Or Alive..? - Poem by Arun Achudh

I hear the moans all around,
Familiar voices cryin by,
I see nothin but black background,
Rasterized & petrified I lie unmoved,
I have life but couldn’t prove;
Am I dead?

Breakin aloud till my chords shudder,
But seems to hear;
Girl where r u? I need u now here, caz-
Its u the only one who can sense my tears;
Fear strikes as its dark inside,
The only light-My soul is waitin to see ur sight.

Why it happened? Why am I so?
I pondered;
I remember my heart sayin a word,
The same word u told for the last-Goodbye!
Then came a deep breath killin my blood,
Veins emptied, lungs dried & at this juncture,
My heart cried the name of urs;

Girl are u the reason for this?
Worry not; I wont say anyone a word about this;
Even now I cant bare to see u cry, caz-
I love for all the lives that’s yet to arrive;
Jus then I hear u comin by,
Cry not girl caz that’s the hardest thing
For me to survive;

Come near and touch me by,
Let me warmth of ur palms;
Hug me tight & let me feel ur love, caz-
Am not dead; am still alive;
But rather if u are yet so shy,
To tell the reason why,
That u made me cry, caz-
Its love that binds us tight,
Forever tonight;
And in ur hands lies,
Whether to see me dead or alive….
