The Denouement - Poem by NAYANIKA DEY

I sensed myself sinking down
Culminating the stuccoes of existence
Crossing denouements of mortality
Obeying the laws of life's caducity
And defying the clusters of earthly brevity.
My nostrils perceived the essence
Beyond the sod
My ears apprehended the sounds
Of heavy metal spades
And my eyes saw the quietus
When the granules of clods broke
And made space for me
To lie amongst them
While my body felt the ache
When I was being gently graved.

I roused to realize
That my sweven
Toured me down
To the afterlife lane
To forgraith me
For the next realm of existence.

    Hi Nayanika,
    A poem on the eternal truth; the ultimate truth of life: : DEATH! Very profound write with a matching choice of vocabulary. Loved reading, though, on one or two occasions, I had to refer to dictionary..

    A marvelous ten for this lovely but poignant poem; I would another 10 for the following lines:

    I roused to realize
    That my sweven
    Toured me down
    To the afterlife lane
    To forgraith me
    For the next realm of existence.
