The night creeps in
and the adjoining silence fills in.
descending on my lashes,
sleep slowly subsumes me.
But, there is a sense of joy,
a sense of relief in the hope
that soon peace will be achieved.
But, only a moment ago
the fading hue of day
had met the bold streaks of night.
Yes, only a moment ago
the glowing moon and
the blowing wind had promised
me an unaccounted freedom I desired.
I had summoned some darkness
to keep myself with you
through this silent night.
Only a moment ago,smiling and blushing
beneath your lovely sight I saw myself
doting on you, to mark your presence bright.
I had, just a moment ago,
pledged to bear the impression
and preserve the imprint in my memory
to revisit them for such sacred ceremony.
But, that moment was shattered
only a moment ago
when my love was subsumed in its pain of rejection.
