You

May 25, 2010 at 10:59 am (Dominic Alapat, Poetry) ()

 were not whole.

You were unraveling

before me.

You were weeping

when the world offered itself

to you.

You found emptiness.

Now I am undone.

Now I am unraveling before you.

    B’liv me, I lost my ‘Self’ while passing through these Zen-istic words…
    Losing control over self generates an energy to have control over subtle, unseen, intangible, mundane self of the existence… This in fact is the epicentre for the entire game of life, where you win over death by losing the game itself…Where the very meaning of Death is nullified by the nihilistic but prominent footprints of Life…
    Simply Beautiful Poem…
