Life n Death

What is life ?

…its a distance between

the ground n the sky

..its a road with many cracks

and endless signs to make

a wrong turn

…its a flowing a river

that ends somewhere

and plunges down

where it ends

…its a time span

from the sun rise

n when it sets..


What is death ?

…its where light begins to shine

when darkness prevails

…its when the mind stops working

but the heart is still beating

….its the closeness we feel

with God’s existence

…its the beginning

of a never ending life…




The Creature…

A body fell deep into a Black Sea

leaving the spirit behind

I was mirrored by an image

sinking… falling…

I saw my soul separate from my body

it sank n disappeared

into an unknown sea..

too dark to contemplate

the heart didn’t feel

at the right place

everything felt empty

just like my invisible hands

I looked around, searching

saw some movement in the distance

yet no one noticed

no help nearby

Time was running

time was of essence and

it was slipping away

I wandered a little further

n’ found a boat with a strange

looking creature

holding  the light of hope

I croaked my concern

my voice devoid of any emotions

this wasn’t me…

trying not to panic

I managed a whisper

begging the creature

with green eyes

to retrieve my lost soul

I held its hand with uneven fingers

and lead them

towards the spot where

my body had fallen

the creature signaled

he was going in…

sensing my anguish

he placed his thumb

where my heart could’ve been

a sign of reassurance…

his ears, one up, one down

twitched every minute

without another glance

he dove deep down into a murkiness

Before all would be lost

before the little life left in me

wavered to a place unknown

suddenly…. like magic

a sign of twilight emerged

outlining all the edges

visible to the eyes

a pinch of light sprinkled

its way into the ocean

a few more dust of light

made its way closer…

there, the body came into view

like resting into a deep sleep

I felt my lungs

stripped of oxygen

my eyes losing vision

the last sight… the creature

dark shade of blue,

3 uneven fingers on each hand,

was pulling out my lifeless body

his soft green eyes, held mine

as I drifted away into another world


hours, days or maybe months later

I regained my consciousness

to a sight of endless ocean

my senses floating away from reality

my fingers caressing the feel of water

my feet dug into a soft sand

the saltish odor of sea n land

I was lost in the oblivion

in search of my soul…
