A challenge

I was chatting with a friend over the weekend about my poems. I told him about the utter listlessnes and the recycling of the same metaphors that seem to have gripped me. In short I was quite disappointed about what I write.

Which in turn resulted into a talk that I happen to write too mushy too lovey dovey poems. This friend challenged myself to write about “death” without mentioning love or lover anywhere.. and these are what I came up with…
