Death Hugs Me Every Night - Poem by Aftab Alam

My Muse, why do you confuse?
When I try to be a poet—
Then, like a poem you use

O my Love, when I love you,
You become a dream—
I lost in profound blue

Death hugs me every night
With hiss- kiss-
On quasi-dead, I see the light bright

Till dawn, I die for the life,
Whispering day break refuse-
Ah! Bird’s holy tune with Krishna’s fife

I listen and sing and dance with hope,
Till baby sun born-
With fear my evil trepidation elope

    Death haunts, but hope provides.Truly life is a mediation between fear and hope.

    A beautiful poem on a poet's experience at night until dawn breaks and another day begins with bird's holy tune and Krishna's fife. It is a wonderful poem, I enjoyed very much. Thank you poet Aftab Alam for sharing this. (Report) Reply
