Poetry 2018 Longlist, Arkadeep Sengupta

A Question for Death

Dearest Death,

Could you not have taken

The longest way to my gate,

To be a bit more late.

Or have postponed your arrival.

For I wished and hoped-

Life’s presence a bit more

And now that you stand on my very door

I wish to ask you a question

Asked once in a folklore-

“Will I ever again taste the sweetness

Of Life’s prosperity,

Or mix with the eternal eternity?”
