Life: A Summary


Life: A Summary

-          Amol Redij (India)


There's a hungry me

wanting to be consumed,

within... I reside;

inside a greedy myself.

I can eat up my own self.

Chew it to the bits,

Mince it, that no remains remain!

Stop though,

for all that forgetfulness,

is about my nonexistent life.

I breed on my decaying breath,

I breathe my lifeless soul.

Thus, I live.

I, will die, only with,

my decaying corpse;

my lungs breathe;


my jaws still remember to smile.
