TWO FRIENDS

"Death-you are so good a friend
You drop in uninvited.
Life-you are so good a companion,
Its nice to walk with you.

Death-you are so good a reliever,
You redeem all from pain.
Life-you are so loyal an ally,
You make me feel worthy.

Death - I appreciate you -
You are impartial.
Life - I love you-
You make men out of mud. "
These were Vishu's lines.Shweta read them over and over,many times a day,pondering ,on them or Vishu one couldn't say.

To be continued...

Pranav Kumar V said…
Death, you hit me so hard
I know you're for real
Life, you cut me so smooth
I know not, you're surreal

Life you fly me so high
I'm floating in mid-air
Death, you put me so low
I'm six-feet under with no room to spare

WOW!! These friends are too darn cool!! Ain't they?? Life is merely an illusion, death is the reality. Lol!!

See you when I see you...

@divya,
life n death r 2 frnds of ours,1 of wich remains wid us at all times,we can either live or die.
thanx 4 d comments..
ANWESA said…
@pranav kumar v,
liked ur verse,but life is so vast dat it the thin lines between real n unreal fade out sometimes,n death so profound that its nothing but real.thanx 4 d comments..
ABHISHEK SiM said…
profound.

reading this mind wandered a bit... the beginning and end always seem the same - say for example sunset and sunrise, the calm before storm - after storm.

p.s.:they say early bird catches the worm. but what if the worm was late? - my excuse for late comments :)
Aneesh said…
Perfect!

I like the words
"Death - I appreciate you -
You are impartial"
So true and very well written.
:)
Leo said…
i dont know anwesa...

i have a lot of words...
excellent brilliant marvellous captivative thoughtful great....

but they are all to less to describe your poetry these days... it blows me away...!! :)

life and death, two friends... superb...(even that is less!!)
loved it... sort of a ying and yang combination... one cant exist without the other!! :)
its beautiful in its simplicity. Its giving expressions to everybody's thoughts.

its the kind of dark poetry which makes you smile at its sheer ingenuity!!

CяŷştąŁ said…
Your first attempts can't be writen by me even if I make ten attempts =P

But do you really think Death can redeem pain?

No contradiction thr..right?

Suresh Kumar said…
Nice Poem.
Yeah Death s a friend who gives a suprise visit and just takes you along with him away from other friends.
And sure, Life s a sweet companion who may walk away from you at any time and never return. So make the best use of him.

ANWESA said…
@vinz aka vinu,
thanx..welcome back here..keep blogging
Kartz said…
Ok... So here's where it started...

Indeed, death is impartial. But do you really think life is an ally...? (No, I am not a morbid cynic.)

Death is a certainty... You enjoy the ride of life till death comes knocking. At that time life is not your ally. It submits to death...

Liked the underlying philosophy...

Peace.
ANWESA said…
@kartz,
life's always an ally coz it allows u 2 do things which can leave a mark on the world even after death grips one's lyf.
thanx 4 visiting!!
Kartz said…
Indeed. That's always there.

As I said, I liked the underling philosophy...

WAITING FOR YOU

Concealed by dark clouds
You keep shining.
Bright streaks of light
Dazzle me.
Enchant me.
And keep me waiting..
Waiting for you.

77 FICTION : TEAR FILLED EYES

The eyes searched someone. The one she could run to at times of need. In someone’s lap, she would pour out all her troubles.
Nobody came.  She grew up, rimmed her eyes with kohl. But they could never hide her tears.
No one came when her soul was ripped apart. No one heard her cries. No one mourned her loss.
After  a while, she thought that tears were a part of the eyes.

All Consuming Love

Dear You,

Looks like I have found you.

In the depths of my love, I notice your smile.

Yes, the one you flash after that brief moment of joy.

I feel your fingers entwined in mine. All the time.

Your eyes speak to mine, asking me questions.

Remember the first time I told you of my affection and my afflictions ?

You must know this. You consume my thoughts, time and grief.

Glad to have met you.

Yours,

Me.
