Stealthy lover

Stealthy lover

stealing life

prying from nowhere

sometimes around the corner

waiting to pounce

a happy unhappy surprise

it does not matter to him

what he does to you

but obey you have to nevertheless

the lease of life sometimes extends

many times is cut short

he is the master

wonder why we don’t worship him

knowing his peculiar ways

his all powerful unyielding stance

or those sudden inexplicable getaways

the master of every life

Yama, the lord

a prince once took offence

and turned mendicant

we do often ignore him

till he shows up from nowhere

a reminder of the grim truth

accept, allow, embrace

life and exchange of energies

transcending time, place

stealthy lover of life

your insatiable thirst

often breaks hearts and homes
