Death









Oh Death!

You always arrive, suddenly!
No matter when, or where or for whom;
your sudden presence is felt,
On the Life that Was.

Your shadows spread
Like an oil spill, 
On whose, 'someone', you took away.

Those shadows are weird,
Full of memories!

In the mourning tears,
You smile in your darkness,
To affirm your supreme-ness.

within tears lies the love,
Which stays ever undeterred, triumphant ever.
Overpowering your deadly vagabond self !
