Betrayal



I think I lost my way
Dark and dizzy; is it day ?
Misty air- all hazy to see
I feel lonely and scary.

A little streak of light
Appeared like a sharp lancet
Yet my visibility fails
I wonder if my room flails.

I bawl and cry out loud
Am I wrapped in a shroud ?
No one hears my wail of sorrow
My echo returns all hollow

'Tis queer that I see myself lying there
bandage wound ,only the face to spare.
Hands are bloody hanging limp
What's that a dying lump?

Men in white confer as crew
no use of defibrillator , they knew
None to grieve, sob or plead
I lay there like an uprooted weed.

There I see a teeny weeny ball
"Before I could rise I saw my fall "
Said the un-happening tiny herb
Unreleased rudimentary wee little blurb.

The orb San eyes San nose on
Soundless silent still born
Clinging to me as newborn
Remember I am not the only one

Moon to glam up the starlit night
As gazes met , hands interlocked tight
I bid the happy secret.
My euphoria did end just abrupt.

Unwelcome was the unknown soul
So was I in the game of foul
The warm caress on shoulder
Pressed me like a boulder

For a while my feet in air
Did not count the floors
Until I landed with a blub
Faint noise of sirens died

Number is tagged to my carcass
My little angel tagged with me
Sliding into draws of frozen bed

There those unassuming eyes
Whose promises were sweet lies
Confirming the end game
Termination of two in one stroke.

Is there someone to hear me
I point to him; no one can see.
I took hold of the man
Humming in the mortuary

Day and night to race
My medium shall pace
My best laid plan is f
Is for all three to rest in peace
