M.D Dinesh Nair
BUT I CLOSED MY EYES
I saw a poor man dying old and worn out
So poor that he died hungry and
While dying his soul wished to come out
But it could not.
The man`s frame was so weak with hunger wrought within
That he could not breathe his soul out
And it too died within his frame'!
He was buried in a graveyard
Where soulless corpses lay in peace.
I saw a god hiding for ever in his eternity
So invisible that none could see him
While hiding he did not long for a companion
And for sure he was not there either.
God`s hands were fumbling over the vast universe
That had long before taken him by fancy
And it was now dropping into the nadir of memories cold!
He stared at the infinite times ahead
Where unto a trillion prayers were still traversing!
I could have seen much more
But I closed my eyes!
