Wings Of Death Poem by Jaishree Nair

Wings Of Death

Rating: 4.1


Waving she stood on the threshold,
her husband and children on the road,
her elder to competition quiz,
blessed her with a smile whiz.

She entered the house silent,
Long hours to wrestle giant-
before their return expected
A nap before the chores selected.

She lay on the sofa refined,
reflection breezed through her mind-
happiness and contentment she felt-
her life settled and secure-she dwelt

Her two daughters sweet,
scores good in academics neat,
extra curricular activities keen,
hubby-chair person of a company esteem.

A sigh of contentment surged
relaxed and joyful merged,
closed her eyes light
went into a slumber right.

Evening returned her family dear,
rang the bell and waited near,
silence unusual -deathly still,
their hearts clutched in fear chill.

Forced open the door,
sleeping like an angel -they swore
realisation dawned-turned to stone
he sat; in agony tearing his own.

Helpless and bleeding inside,
His heart -prised away all too soon;
'My thirst for your love is not quenched;
many things left unsaid between us'

His lament was heart rending;
Others wrung their hands in despair unending;
The young ones bewildered when confronted-
with the ultimate doom of all life too soon!

They embraced their mama dear-
'your wish fulfilled'-the elder screamed;
The winner trophy she had secured,
for her mom she had procured.

But alas! ! mama lay cold;
could not rejoice in her victory bold,
The trophy tarnished lay unnoticed,
Silent witness to the tragedy focused.
