Just A Walk Away Poem by Bishnupada Sethi

Just A Walk Away

Rating: 4.8


How do you feel
When almost everyday
You hear someone you knew,
Lived together at some time
Or grew up with
Is no more?

At the beginning
Occasional were such events
Or the persons were not so close.
Feeble were the impressions
And hard feelings were very few.
Life was to go on
As long as the near ones
Stayed close
Or remained safe.

Now like the mushrooms
Of dark clouds of a fierce monsoon
The vultures of death
Lift one by one
Indiscriminately wherever you look.
Another friend is gone
And you ponder.
Does it indicate
If my time too is up?

Now I feel existing
Like a corpse.
A wall of mist
Only separating two worlds
Of living
And the dead
And my shifting to the other side
Seems just a walk away.
