When I Was Dying. - Poem by Prakash Mehra

When I was dying, and dealing with the angel of death.
You disappeared, and didn’t turn back.
What were you waiting for, perhaps, my final breath!

    What a touching lines? ? ?
    Weren’t you aware of severity; didn’t you catch the growing bane?
    Yet you let me die, and broke the cord.
    Why did you leave me in silence, when I was in hyper pain!

    Mehra. Your poem touched my sentiment. So simple...so soothing. Keep it up.

    Yes, I like this Prakesh. Thank you.

    (I try to steer clear of poems about God, alot of people on this site get very upset, and send rude emails! ! ! ! And they are usually very poor poets anyway! ! !)

    I give you the strength to rebuke the one that gave you the strength to free yourself from me P.M., and as A.R.T or any reflective teaching I would say this is an angry child, but account for the autism, and then again I was made to be a walking pin cushion, I just always hated needles (Report)Reply

    Powerful and deep feelings written to form a message. Very strong and created with emotion. Touched with a hint of mystery, this is a piece done with some thought. Nice work. Debbie (Report)Reply

    You present us with a fresh look at this experience of dying which we all will experience only once and never be able to respond to. Poetry can be a healing experience. I hope it works for you. Love, of course, has its consequences, not always the desirable kind. (Report)Reply
