Embracing the End

Embracing the End

Last Summer

I discovered ways

To speak love

Between lines

Weaving melodies and word

Reinventing speech

 

Time runner

I haggled with death

Won over

With a kiss

Many a promise to miss

With scarce borrowed time

 

All things start

Within promises

And die slow

Within breath

Woven with threads of wonder

That run through bright life

 

All that starts

Also has an end

The story

Comes slowly

To a screeching grinding halt

As teeth clench sorrow

 

Gone morrow

Vainly sacrificed

A bet made

Like Dante

Alternate realities

Arrogant belief

 

Vanity lair

Tombstone of the fools

Seen future

Illusion

A game rigged in confusion

Carelessly rolled dice

 

It is done

Lay down the tired head

In cool lands

Where rivers

Speak of the peaceful feeling

Embracing the End

  1. beautiful poem, I love the accompanying images/videos. The first one is gorgeous. I especially love “All things start

    Within promises

    And die slow

    Within breath

    Woven with threads of wonder

    That run through bright life” such lovely images and sentiments which you weave through the rest of the poem.

  2. Sometimes we make the most absurd bargains with life, don’t we? Often times it is never a fair bet. The scale is always tipped in favor of the house. Yet we try anyone. Very well done, Geetha. 🙂 ♡
