Death could not us part

The evil that we do
lives much longer than us
the wily all pervasive monsters
that technology created
had me in their thrall
all my life
and now that I have shed
my mottled mortal coat
the lure of my device
has given afterlife to
my creaking, enduring bones
dear Death,Β  we were inseparable
you can not part us
this match made on Earth
will continue… in heaven or hell!

I would like to extend heartfelt gratitude to each one of you for your wishes, prayers and blessings. My cousin’s daughter left for Romania on Friday. My husband and I picked her up from the airport today morning. Her brother is still stuck in the hostel though he was supposed to leave this morning. There are too many kids and not enough means of transport. But we are hopeful he will leave sometime tomorrow and be here in a couple of days.

Thank you so much all. πŸ™πŸΌ

  2. Punam, hon, I love you and wish you and your family the best. I am not sure what’s going on. Your cousin and your family in Romania fleeing Ukraine ? Whatever is going on, may you be blessed and may your family be safe

    1. Gabriela, thank you so much for your wishes. My cousins kids are studying medicine in Ukraine. Thankfully both of them reached Romania safely. My niece arrived on Sunday morning and my nephew will most probably fly out from Romania tonight or tomorrow.

  3. you added a gruesome dimension to this ghastly eery pic … sadly too many are becoming this way! Inseparable from their devices, they’ll need a very long life battery for whatever comes next πŸ˜‰ doubt there are any recharging stations where they’re going πŸ™‚

    Sorry I didn’t know you have family in striff, seems I’ve missed a post

    1. The pic is ghastly, I agree. And the kids these days are constantly glued to their devices. Lol I know batteries die pretty soon. Maybe the future phones won’t die! πŸ˜‰

      Kate, there are more than 18000 Indian students in Ukraine. My cousin’s two kids were also there. My niece arrived on Sunday and the nephew has reached Romania and will be home soon.

      1. You’re most welcome my dear sister! I’m glad that now they both are safe, though there are so many kids from both our countries still stuck there. Praying for everyone


  5. Inseparable indeed! Seems the younger generation has the phone glued to their hand and ear… At least that was the case at the ice cream gathering this last night! Bittersweet update – one safely arrived and the other still pending… prayers always.

  6. I hope the anxious wait is over soon, Punam.
    I regularly hear disturbing stories of this so-called matrix and find myself berating the storytellers for their invention. I am trapped in it apparently. The fact that i have no awareness of this, is proof of these claims. Your poem touches that nerve. The matrix and your poem share a characteristic. They morph to target a vulnerability.

    1. It is Tracy. He is safe and will be home soon.

      Sadly, it is not an invention. The present generation cannot imagine their life without it! Though of course, as expected, I exaggerated…a bit.


  7. I am sure in Heaven or in Hell we’d we playing harp in our phones or staring at a virtual fire on our phones! Teeny monsters indeed.
    And prayers for your family.
