I Fall Asleep Poem by Binayakumar Mohanty

I Fall Asleep

Rating: 5.0


My last love
lay dying
chronic death,
I fall asleep,
undone.

The naughty rodent
bit into pieces
the book I liked most
I fall asleep,
undone.

The nicest blossom
in my garden shrivel up
infested with stem borer,
I fall asleep,
undone.

The band of security men
with covetous gun
loaded
aim at
the virgin youth
of the school girl,
wild but innocent,
I fall asleep,
undone.

The pious lady,
old and sick
in the cottage nearby
plucks flower
to worship, the deity
the male dog, nasty
pees over pollute.

I fall asleep,
undone.

The black cobra,
eats away
the last egg in the nest
the mother dove
in search of food
killed by the eagle
the storm destroys
the nest,
the young birds left
orphan,
hungry for love,
I fall asleep,
undone.

The sweetest melody
fades away
from my sweetest song
leaving my dancing feet
upset,
I fall asleep,
undone.....

Disparate scenes of destruction and hopelessness! Here I sense the frustration and indignation of one who sees unfortunate incidents happening all around him! But nothing is within his control! He feels so helpless to change the rotten state and falls into a kind of emotional lethargy!
