Betrothal to Death

Betrothal to Death

Conception precedes voyage to deep sleep,

Pretentious life moves ignoring meanwhile,

When twilight caresses betrothal ring,

Realisation dawns kissing life’s lips.

On reckoning day, knocking you will come,

With doors ajar, I’ll wait in bridal gown,

Heart’s closed castle will surrender to thee,

Life’s mystery will finally be solved.

Nails caressing coffin bring curtain down,

Opening doors to our alcove of love,

Where canopy of blooming lilies white,

Encompasses me in its serene hue.

Lest stars start fading & the moon turns pale,

Scoop me in arms and let me swoon in trance.
