I walk on a road lush with dreams,
a road of forgotten and veiled dreams,
sometimes slowly, sometimes gaily,
sometimes lost, sometimes profound,
I walk a road of unknown mysteries,
fervently finding my way through the endless path.....

...the last gasp...


Endless steps
I climb
darker dungeons
the last gasp...

O where did I leave
my own self
amidst uncertain 
the last gasp...

In the flowing river
I crawl helplessly
up and down
to reach no where
the last gasp...

Crumbled dreams
in a wounded box
rip it apart
let me escape
the last gasp...

Royal curtains
beaded and stoned
aren't pretty anymore
tear them apart
the last gasp...

Blood rushes
in and out
profuse and red
momentary respite
the last gasp...

Silence murdered
the soul inside
a gush of air
and it all ends
the last gasp....


  1. Sometimes we find everything out of the place... there's a lot in life that is left unfinished. Its best to try creating the magic, and what matters is that you get your best shot in everything...that way you won't get anything to complain or regret about :) Nice poem Sarah :)


    1. yes true! and sometimes, even a little effort is equivalent to a struggle so hard..but u got to fight for urself in d end :) glad u liked it!

  2. I loved how your mind came up with these lines!! Loved it!!

    1. thnks, even i have little clue how i came up with these lines :)

  3. It's very very well-written, Sarah..
    I can see lots of shades in there - but the very first picture that came to my mind, was that of suicide.. a kind of a death wish..
    and then, probably, the end of evil...
    and then, the resurrection..

    1. I leave it upto my readers to decide what they visualized in my writings :) but there is definitely resurrection! so glad u liked it!

  4. S S,

    The quest of finding own lost soul conveyed in such engrossing words. Keep writing more.

    Take care

  5. It's like searching for the infinity...the more you try to unravel it the more it eludes you !

    1. yes, and at one point of time our mind simply cant search more!
