The living dead

Why is this charade of living
Every moment is a struggle
A life living like a dead
Why this thirst unquenched
Relive daily the struggle to live
Is it just an illusion
A role playing
Dead playing the living
O’ you romantic
Yearning for a night
Under the starlit sky
Come share my bed
On the street
Even the full moon
Casts a dark shadow here
Hear my story and chronicle
The life of a living dead

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

  1. Dead man walking. Not me. I’m breathing, eating, walking, talking, writing, hoping, loving, believing, enjoying, laughing, crying, shouting, whispering, worshiping, working, seeing, hearing, feeling, helping, serving, remembering, planning, dreaming, waiting, …. Someday I will die, and just keep on with the above except for the crying. 😀

      1. If you can read,, you can write. Specially as you write in Hindi, it will come naturally.
        I have issues with Hindi grammer. A few of my college class mates help in editing.

      2. I always had high regards for the Jewish people for their devotion to their language and religion. We Assamese on the other hand pride ourselves on giving up our heritage at the slightest pretext. Please don’t take it personally. I have not been able to teach my kids the language till now. Two of them speaks it well enough but the third (middle)one is not fluent. None of them, sadly, can read or write.
