To Death Poem by Sanjukta Nag

To Death

Rating: 4.5


You can't possess all the grains of life
I contain.
The fragrance of light I gathered,
Warmth of hope,
Ruffling sweetness of glee,
Illusion of shadow inside the moon.
All are dancing cheek to cheek
With their eloquent internal symphony.
And I'm growing larger than life,
Floating beyond your black hands of coldness.
You can own this fragile flesh of mine,
But the rainbow of my transparent spirit will
Never rest on your palms,
For they are invisible particles,
Revolving swiftly
Around the invincible universe of infinity.
