And when the evening shadows
tiptoed into my heart,

While I was rocking on my armchair
reminiscing all alone,
Assimilating thoughts,
comprehending my world of dreams

right at that moment your thoughts invaded my world,
leaving me desirous and restless

though convoluted
yet it displayed a mesmerizing sheen
like some juxtaposition of emotions
and myriad tales of occult with gleam

and like every time I asked your aberrant presence
why did you leave behind your troubling impressions for me to keep

She didn’t answer
and now I am left confused
unsure how to solve this enigma called you
