Before I wither

The angel of death calls me hither,
Whilst my heart still yearns to linger
To live a loveless life or like a virgin flower wither,
Tell me my friends, which is better.
In this life I have tasted many a medicine bitter,
None worse than the love i couldn't savour.
To live a loveless life or like a virgin flower wither,
Tell me my friends, which is better.
Love I have heard is a miracle worker,
How would I know? I never have met her.
To live a loveless life or like a virgin flower wither,
Tell me my friends, which is better.
I do not wish to pass on into the heavens yonder,
If true love, is to be found in the lands of Lucifer.
Yes, like the virgin flower I am ready to wither,
I take your leave my friends. My love awaits me in the nether.

Hey dude...
Before my mom literally drags me off my computer and feeds me with some freshly cooked upma... I want to say one thing...

I really don't understand poetry that well :)...

BTW... the photograph on your orkut profile in conjunction with this post gives me the perception that you are frustrated ;)... Don't be... No flower withers virign... There will be a bee or two knockin on your door soon...
catchya...

sumod_talking said...

@ hiren

thanks dude... :)

@ red e

will be meeting u in office to set this misconception of urs right dude :D

that's my "how u doin'" look and like i told ya the poetry doesn't neccesarily reflect the poet's mood...

the bees, they can keep knocking all they want... depends on me whether i open my "doors" of love to them or not :P

Sameera said...

hmm someone knock me on my head
but to me living a loveless life or withering like a virgin dont sound like two radically different things..

u could definetly enlighten me..or just ask me to stop trying to comprehend poetry...the latter being a better solution :) considerin how hopeless i am at poetry

but ishtill i also feel ur givin out these lonely and lookin for someone vibes :D

dont kill me

sumod_talking said...

@sameera

I would like to have the honour of knocking u on the head...

for the umpteenth time, the views are of the author are his but they do not i repeat DO NOT reveal in any way the state of his mind... oh my god... no there are no such vibes... single and doing the jingle... am happy this way :-)

will explain the poem to u soon... ;-)

mywhirlingpen@gmail.com said...
