Ride the Monday Poetry train too...
after three days of being in coma, his soul left his earthly body
pain, what is it?
what of it?
very difficult to explain when you are in a numbed state
a living breathing person becomes just a body
in split of a second
beyond anyone's control
got him home for his final journey
to the abode wherever the soul escapes
via crematory fire
preparing myself to accompany him to the cremation grounds
then I overheard,"we can't take her. females do not go to the crematorium."
my mom endorsed
that was the end of it
I stayed home while he was consigned to flames
my last glimpse of him
he wrapped in a white shroud
can I ever escape it?
do I want to?
I don't know
all I know is my dad deserves the best
even in my memories
Hindu females are not allowed to go to cremation grounds...
