In the realm of sedatives

IMG_20171025_172354503

 

Where all efforts cease

and the desperate fights are put to rest.

The menacing chaos meets peace

and grants a halt to its aggressive quest.

 

You no longer have to pretend it doesn’t hurt,

coz you know the pain will be back in waves.

But tonight you’ll sleep like a fallen leaf under the dirt.

Unseen. Undisturbed. Still, as in the graves.

 

So what if life is slipping away?

Your desperate hold on life is strangling it anyway.

So relax for now and let the surgeons play,

You’ll get to fight your own fight every other day.

 

You’ll hear faint voices from time to time,

calling out your name from miles afar.

Like a loud church bell sometimes or sweet mumbles of chime,

making it sound sinister and bizarre.

 

Where darling you don’t complain of the ultimate distress.

Despite the oxygen feeder choking your throat.

So what if poking needles and entangled saline pipes are in a mess,

you got a handful of nights to stay peacefully afloat.

 

Where you know it’s a story of your perseverance

and not of punctured nerves and neat stitches.

For you will see all but scars in reminiscence

and the resilience against life’s ugly glitches.

 

So when the fight gets tough, come over my friend

into the renowned realm of sedatives.

A no-man’s land in world’s end

unflatteringly sung about in poesies.

About SK Rajeshwari

I am an incurable bibliophile, dreamer, writer, poet and connoisseur of all things beautiful. This blog 'My Cosmos' is my first love and nothing pleases me more than constructive feedback for my write-ups. My second love is books. I am an insatiable and roly-poly bookworm. Books teach me how to explore the world inside me and the ones that are outcomes of someone else's unadulterated imagination. What beautifies my existence is the endless walk I enjoy putting on those shoes of imagination. Step into my world, feel my poems and allow your wandering soul to be hypnotized by the fragrance of the captivating manifestations of my dreams, experiences and imagination. Allow this feeling to creep into your being and let your nerves speak the language of beauty and artistry. Bienvenido :)
