DEATH NOTE

Of last breaths and deathly silences
By Neel Anil Panickerimages

Life is a born loser
and Death
a born winner.

The unlikely duo
Life and Death
like chalk and cheese
strange bedfellows aren’t they
destined not to meet ever.

And men and women
mere bystanders
cursed to watching
like mute spectators
every waking day
and hour
and minute
Life…
struggling…grieving…shrieking,
holding on…holding out…
clinging, and then gasping
for each breath
only to lose
as has been ordained
to dear deathly Death

Poor Life
Just didn’t know
that when
life’s laughter ends
Death’s dance begins.
