‘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.
(C) ABHA IYENGAR. (first published in sage of consciousness issue 2.2)

Hello... I think you're an amazing writer. If I have sufficient money anyday I will maybe buy your book. The word-play in 'the rain falls blindly' was amazing.
