‘The Last Breath’ by Abha Iyengar

I've danced
with dervishes
And whirled
to their wishes
In dreams that swirled
So very fast.

I have lived
With the ghosts
Of my past
They continue to haunt
To the last.

I close my eyes
And nightmares speak
Of death and deliverance.
Heaven, hell, retribution,
Salvation, words that make
No sense.
