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.
