Abstract


As Much As

As Much As

1 min 3 1 min 3

You die, as much as you choose to

Each day...

So also you live

Every distinct moment

You dive into... that comes your way


Here is the second ...that elapsed 

The minute too

I could see...palpate 

Yet could not hold on to 


The time that has just slipped out of hand 

Like sand ...

Has joined the elusive past

The deep gorge 

That houses went by

Eats into each breath

Slowly and steadily

Like an ant devours ...starting from the edge


Wish time stood still like a statue

As a lifeless clock hangs on the wall

Alas!

Things perhaps are not devised like that

And my wishes seem to fade fast


Time moves in its pace 

Like a sleepy bud slowly raises head 

Blooms with grace 

Silently advances...gnaws into a labyrinth 

As per the set pattern of life


Birth after birth

Time in its repetitive stance

Tries to whisper in our ears...

"every drop of this one of a kind offer

Is to be savored with love."
