If I - Poem by Janam Acharya
If i throw myself down a precipice so huge
End up breaking my cervix and be taken far away
Get submerged in the creek, evanishing my entity
Tell you goodnight tonight and not wake up the next day
If i pierce my skin and cut down my nerves;
Self slaughter my immortality one day
Get into cigarette, drugs or nocuous herbs
With no hope to thrive and pray for my decay
If i burn myself to ashes or get icebound
finish up drinking a poison or starve myself to death
Lay down between the pavement of the impending train
And do the things that wont lead me home but the dead bed instead
if i get perished and not answer your call any further
Get far off to a place you are certain not to find
Encompassed by intruder, caged by the fences
No hope to dismantle its vastness, no hope to break this giant
Tell me, will it ever leave you aghast?
If the highland ever lead my frame shivel and squashed
Tell me, would you buckle down to find the reason behind the drabness in my eyes?
Tell me, would you think twice before saying any more goodbyes?
Tell me if you would regret not telling the words that you always wanted to
Tell me if you would ever hit the switch in the twilight and think sometimes of me too..
I sincerely do hope you miss me down the line
I hope for once i get to strain that shrive
‘Regrets and remorse lasts for a lifetime' they say
So come over and tell me that you love me too while i am still alive.
