[Drama in Real Life ~ In Memoriam of Rituporno Ghosh [1962-30.05.13]
[Note: From Drama in Real Life of a Lady Doctor of UK in her Terminal Illness ~ poetically framed ~ niv]

Final phenomenon
‘Sister don't
Give me opiate
Let me satiate
Final phenomenon! ' [A]

‘In lulling slumber
Let it not
Pass in haste
Want to taste
Final phenomenon.'

[Here ends Doctor's final utterance] [B]

Poetic conceptualization ~

Levitating light
Out of body
Merges with
Fulgent blazing
Oceans. [C]

Superconscious! ! ! [D]

Million Suns
Deluging blazes
Million oceans of
Reflecting shining in
Million mellowed billows. [E]

In uber celestial
Oceanic mansion
Refulgent biblioaudio
Bliss euphonic minstrel
Oozing fluxing
Dancing balleting.

Singing mellifluent
Ooohing Dr.! [F]

In only
Lambent corpus canto
Dr. finds her fond
Éclat fab Thee
‘Lucent Poetry'
Scintillating saying,
‘'Tis Final phenomenon
I'm yours! '[G]

Awed Dr.
Syncretizing with
‘That Thee! ' [H]

Is it niv's distillate
Of delirious
Poetic Apogee?

Glossary: With humility glossary given for what I tried to express.

    Hi Ms Bagchi

    I read your poem and believe me it left somewhat speechless.
    It is not a happy-go-lucky one for sure!
    Coming from a doctor I can understand the sentiments behind it.
    If it was meant to create awe and shock I must admit that you have succeeded.
    Well done.

    I have myself recently written a poem dealing with cancer. I shall post for what it is worth and include it also here:

    Martyrs Of The Modern Era

    (With special thanks to Mr John A. Xuereb
    for the inspiration of these verses.)

    Cancer is a word, not a sentence. ~ John Diamond

    There are as many different deaths
    as there are people who walk around,
    for when you die you die alone
    and you depart without a sound.

    There are also cancer patients
    who go on living while they are dying,
    who go on dying while they are living
    as the Grim Reaper they keep defying.

    Some cancer patients frequent a club
    where they just stare as they are treated,
    it is a club none want to join
    where each newcomer is sombrely greeted.

    They trudge in corridors or waiting rooms
    where they talk and share their grief,
    where they feign that Life goes on
    always hoping in Death’s reprieve.

    Cancer patients live on chimo
    which is supposed to restore Life,
    while for others it's radiotherapy
    which can be deadlier than a knife.

    There’s death written on their faces
    and there’s fear in every heart,
    while they pray and go on hoping
    that from this world they won’t depart.

    So they have blood counts of their cells
    be it the red or be it the white,
    all want to live and none want to die
    they just want to prolong their fight.

    Most cancer patients lose their hair
    while many others shed their weight,
    as they look sadly in the mirror
    while the inevitable they await.

    Some cancer patients facing death
    sleep in hotels with palliative care,
    while there are others who lie awake
    for all this pain they cannot bear.

    Friends and relatives come and go
    offering solace and consolation,
    uttering words devoid of meaning
    as it’s their only alienation.

    For Life is precious and a gift from God
    that God has given and that God does take,
    where pain and suffering are also noble
    when they are offered for His sake.

    But cancer patients who trust in God
    then rise with Christ and not alone,
    they are the martyr of this era
    whom God embraces at His throne.

    Wow. Full of lively movement and fantasy imaginings of that final leap or progression out of this realm into the unknown beyond. Fascinating and all too colourful with excellent words illustrating the drama. While I frankly doubt such experiences of bliss can be substantiated or possible in truth, this does great credit to the phenomenon. Beautiful and all too exciting. (Report)Reply

    Comment: I believe we all go through this stage, hence you don't have to worry. I am inspired by your poem that is called ~ ‘Sister Don't Give Me Opiate I Want To Taste Death' ~ [Drama in Real Life].

    Very good piece and enjoyed the different states you portrayed. Possible overuse of language towards the end, but I appreciate your technique of utilising complex words. The last line is quite powerful with a good double meaning. (Report)Reply

    Esoteric … mystical… qabalistic [Having a secret or hidden meaning] Poem

    Celestial feelings very nicely chiseled

    Out of body sensation worded exquisitely

    ‘…In only/Lambent corpus canto/Dr. finds her fond Éclat fab Thee/‘Lucent Poetry'/Scintillating saying, /‘'Tis Final phenomenon/ I'm yours! ...’ Oops what a vocab to carry readers to the heightened feeling

    Great work

    Thanks sharing
