The Known….. There she stands Staring at me I am trying to ignore her As she is scaring me Her mouth shut But eyes shouting aloud As for years she was searching for me That now she has found I hurried up…moved on To continue with my journey Strangely I found her everywhere As if she is eagerly waiting for me Beautiful she is Clad in all black Kindness is something That her face lack Her face is absolutely blank With no emotions…no feelings With pain in her eyes Now gradually she starts moving While I’m wondering Why can’t anyone notice her Am I the only one to whom she’s visible? She continues moving further Now she increases her pace As if it’s ‘the time’ to complete her mission Now I realize that she is coming towards me Without my permission My mind began to race With my destiny & with her pace My legs moving as fast as my mind Try to succumb my fear, which I’m not able to hide In this quest of moving away from her I was hit by something that I don’t remember The next moment I was struggling to breathe She took my hand & made me stand up Now she smiles at me My pain gone with an ease I’m still puzzled With her mysterious smile & looks Which says “Mission Accomplished” This Delhi noise on top of it Gosh….why are these people shouting Creating a fuss over what Let me also have a glance of that bit Then I saw myself, lying in that pool of blood Saw & heard people discussing that a minute ago I took my last breath A tear dropped out of my eye & a smile flicked on to my face ** That’s when I realized that she is none other than my best friend – “Death” Title: I have kept the Title as “The Known” because Death is something that is known to all human beings….we know that anything that has taken birth is going to Die too. **: A tear dropping out of an eye depicts the pain of leaving everyone behind…. who Loved me & whom I Loved…. & Smile depicts the satisfaction that I have completed my journey. A rare attempt of writing something dark, lets see if this is dark enough to make people comment ….
