Night Rumble

The day went by in a whiff,
for I was surrounded with life’s chaos,
but the night mysteriously stood tall,
for there was no one left to talk,
besides some miscreant thoughts
that kept chasing me until the dawn climbed down
one painfully slow step at a time
and in the folds of silhouette
I often stumbled
and I often drowned

Farrago

With a hustle, she dashed down the deserted corridors escaping the wrath of the eldritch scream that still echoed through the frail walls, and though the barrier appeared fragile it showed a defiant grit braving the test of times. The clamor now morphed into a deep bellow with a farrago of about an uncalled eerie. She knew the time had come.

But was she ready for it?

Promontory Rock

She stood strong
like the promontory rock
jutting out from the rough sea
standing for time immoral
battering the gale, the storm
and the high tides
during the full moon nights

And during the sun-kissed days
it battled with no respite
while the waves slapped its face
it stood tall exuding divine grace
and with defiant hope
it waited for the day
when a wandering seagull
would rest its wings
on its knoll
after a long haul flight
and when with perched eyes
it would gaze the horizon
mapping the pathway
to resume the flight
before the fall of the night

Until then the cape would provide
the seagull comfort and love
before it would soar away
consumed by its wanderlust
with the hope that it would
one day come back to the promontory rock

Never Lose Hope

Don’t lose hope
when the nights are dark,
for the moon has just
transiently smeared
in some celestial smite

But soon the darkness
will dissolve
and brightness will regain
its shimmering light
