When I Die


By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

“I can feel myself wheeze
Every time you open the door
And turn the keys.

Small, grainy dirt
Now clings to my toes.
The chill of the wet cold air
Chokes my throat.
I feel my heart freeze
Every time I cough up.
The cushions beneath me
No longer not break my fall
As I step over a ditch.
Your six-foot tall frame
Is now too big
For my frail frame to carry.
We’ll pretend
Like it didn’t hurt
Just hug me lovingly
Once more
When I die, and
Before you let me go
It’s obvious you can’t bury me
So off to the scrapyard I shall go…”
…the car said to the driver.

  1. 😀Ranjini this is Amazing.
    You made that poor fellow talk to me rather. I think its an old Austin or Morris car. We had an Austin maybe a forties model and I had my memorable childhood days in that.
    I am really impressed by the lines.
    The Scrap Man is like the Yama here. 😂

      1. Same here till today I have not sold one car which I have purchased. My Ambassador in which I have driven more than 25 years and My Tatamobile I have finished travelling almost more than 125000 kms is still with me and standing in front of my house.
        Oh that Italian Fiat is such wonderful car. I Admire it’s suspension. 👌
