“Maa!” ; He shouted as loud as he could, but his voice did not seem to reach….
His body was giving up slowly and his breath sucked in as he desperately tried to coo a voice. A sudden realization hit him as he figured the screams were now only in his head as memories and flashes from his past dragged along.
He wanted something but he couldn’t decide what, his wind pipe now plunged as though a rope had conquered it. He wanted to live, undoubtedly!
A rush of pain and happiness swept through his body as he pictured that sweet comforting face smiling at him, and holding him. “It would her hurt her to see me this way” he thought but he figured her tears might heal his wounds, seizing his pain! As seconds passed by he realized, He wanted, needed and craved for his mother more than anything, even oxygen!
Only then as he was lying there, somewhere, waiting till his paralyzed body and suffocating breath gave up. He finally closed his eyes, because he had now learnt that in this no moon night among the thorns and bushes only the dreams of his mother could pacify him.
Carried away by the remembrance of her scent he wished she could pat him to sleep just like she used too, this time, for an eternal one. For the next morning no matter how much she would try and wake him, he wouldn’t. He still believed that she would probably kiss him hoping that it would wake him up.
Or maybe, just maybe he would wake up and realize it was a bad dream.
His innocence, his love, his faith lied so deep within. Only if he got the chance to show it!
No matter how much he wished, he finally concluded this was it, this was reality, and he had been stabbed till he couldn’t count the number of times. Just for a few bucks or maybe old rivalry but that hardly mattered now that his life was gone, faded in front of his eyes.
Last night when he had argued with his family, and ignored his girlfriend and insulted his friends he obviously dint know this was it.
Now he longed,
For his mother’s sweet song.
The thorns ripped him,
As he took his last breath
Begged for forgiveness for whatever sin..
but his tomorrow never came!
