Because I could not stop for Death-
He didn’t bother stoping for me.
Who would have wanted me anyway?
My parents never cared
At least they never showed they cared
My teachers didn’t notice me
My raised hand would always remain, unnoticed
I didn’t have friends
They humiliated me, laughed at me.
So why would Death need me anyway?
Why would Immortality and Eternity bind me-
I saw the carriage pass by me
Death had no passenger today
But the curse of death itself
I was scared
I don’t know about what
I knew I wasn’t a passenger
No, I wasn’t going
At least not today
I was wearing a silk saree
It flew in the wind
On that one dark, empty night
I wondered if anything was emptier than empty
That was the night
