Ending His Life…

He wants to end his life
estranged from his wife
he feels lonely
he is melancholy,
Is it okay to have such thoughts?
just because sometimes they fought
like cats and dogs they tore
over issues not so hot,
bad dreams no sleep
only memories to keep
logic vanishing volatile
eyes sunken deep,
clueless as to what next
beating heart has no pretext
engulfing void, short of breath
life is now out of context,
he is depressed
he is obsessed
sore and helpless, surely
he must be possessed,
he is yearning
he is threatening
can someone help quick
as he is sinking…..

    Thank you dear Louis. There is so much to do in this world that one life may not be sufficient. I pray for strength to do my counselling sessions incessantly.

    Macbeth would have responded… ‘ Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased,. Pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow,…? The poem is full of pathos… a reality which is rampant in this pandemic era… and the call for urgent help…
