Hide and Seek with Death

By Pranab Ghosh

Hide and Seek with Death

I have rubbed my soul
With your love and lie
Unconscious thinking
About you.

We walk together in
Complete oblivion,
You and I, unobserved
By anyone. Me and
My death.

You come and go.
I embrace your
Memories and try
To give my death
A lie. She smiles
At me, then erases
All my memories

And follows me
Like my shadow.

I run across the path
Of life sure that she
Will run out of breath,
But she follows me
With dogged determination.

Me and my death walk
The aisle of life
Unobserved by anyone.

Me and my death.
