Abandoned

A poetic take on a freak accident that had occurred some years back, leaving an impression on my heart.

Luna

He just left;
Suddenly! Swiftly!
In the middle of the night-
When the stars hid behind the cloud cover,

They came for him.
Woke him up
Pulled him from his bed
Holding him by the hand
Guided him to the edge!
For an instant it was all dark.
Then, he heard music
And was bathed in the light
Of a brilliant Halo!

The next day his room-mates
found him-
His body,
Which had been abandoned by life!

Born in the year 1968, my childhood was spent amidst the beautiful scenic landscape of a small town in India, Ranchi. Though an engineer by qualification, reading, writing and cooking are my passions. Another thing that I am passionate about is my country, India. As they say, a lifetime is probably not enough to explore the whole of India. Currently based in Kolkata, I can be reached at gdutta17@gmail.com.
