New Delhi, Apr 22:  Abducted Sukma district collector Alex Paul Menon used to blog on the internet with the url  http://alexmenon.blogspot.in/


Three years ago, on May 1, 2009, he posted an evocative poem titled 'Lemme pass away tonight':

Like a dewdrop's last shine before the dawn
the worldly gaze of a sapling's root before the burial
the falling leaf's last touch with the stalk
the leisurely freefall of a shedded feather
the mountain's chillness of the last mile downroad.
To dissolve in a second in the infinite pages of the wind that turns and upturns life
for
In a pulse of ultimate acceptance
In a minute of diluted passion
When emotions face death after the freefall
In a moment of condition-less surrender
In a trance infinite and sweeping
In a second of wordless poetry
lemme pass away
like a dewdrop with a last shine before the dawn
