Darkness O'er Her

The light of my life is dwindled,
As a candle, she is put off.
She melted herself outputting her glow;
The fluid she emitted was tears I believed
But finally twas the melting wax I conceived.
The wax from the heat of her glow
Had melted, bringing her down.
Had it not been merely the heat of the glow
But of the destructive and incorrigible one!
"For want of a nail, a shoe was lost,
For want of a shoe, a horse was lost!"
For want of enlightment, a brain was lost,
For want of brain, a soul was lost!
unwarranted agony dissolved her harmony
Superstition enveloped her literacy.
the scenario was swathed with wads of mist
Under the cloudy snow she let herself bury just.
Blind mentally, she drove astray
Envisaging yet ignoring her imminent awry.
her vehicle hit the dead end
And she lay dead in the journey of life.

This poem is written about my aunt who passed away a year ago. She died of tuberculosis, having denied to take treatment for the fear of an injection!!

    Had melted, bringing her down"

  3. I am so sorry to hear about ur aunt But the poem is really good and a lesson to overcome our fears.

    Like the saying from mountain dew ad: Darr ke aage jeet hain

    and it applies to all perhaps a lil frivolous
