A Living Death

I think of
All the people
I’ve lost to
Death.

I miss them
All…

Can anybody
Answer
What happened
To them
After their death?

Are they living
Another life
As is the belief
In after-life
Or are they still
Loitering…
In the lanes
Of death?

If so,
Can those
Wandering
Spirits and souls
Let me know,
How does it feel
To be with death?

Is it better than life,
Which seems to me
A Living Death…

Comment Tennyson hoped that he would meet God after his death : "I would meet my pilot face to face /When I'v crossed the bar".On the other hand, Browning expressed his faith in the next life. The incomplete task of this life will be done in the next life. Your poem has raised all questions related to next life.. it is a nice one like your other poems Aparna Madam...
