A nightly legacy – the poem

Updated on June 19, 2013

Clandestine glance of fragile touch

‘Handle with care’ written in bold

An emotional legacy

Let it be,

Never break the crystal castle vouch

‘Mantle note bare’ for the cold

A deserted diplomacy

Let it be.

Plentiful discord

A shindig of noises around

Yet heart is so much a forlorn spectre,

Many folded mind

Seeking the replies abound

But do not know the search decree.

The motive and sense

In the u-turn of queries and frown

Then a slight smile to brighten the day,

Never the less the dance

In the arms to forget the crown

Elegant was the night to frighten the ray.

A night and a Moon

Was dancing their heart out

In the melody of the stars to rhyme,

The sea and the breeze

Were orchestra for the crowd

To create a ball room bright for time.

Fifteen days of romance

And the night was waiting

For the moon to hug tight forever,

But the moon did not come

Darkest was the crying

Night was bleeding heart however.

A drop of night in the satin sky

Was looking for an answer….

Death or tear…which hurts more?

As the moon did not come

To give company of love

Is better to die or cry….to feel so tore?

Break me and kill me

Tear me apart till the end

Tangle my very breathing till I do not care,

Night was ready to die

Every drop of tears mourned

Rains of that night were ebony black rare.

The night cried darkest rain drops

In the memory of her love

In the memory of the shining Moon,

The moonless night

Stars abandoned forlorn spectre

The night was crying the crystal castle vouch,

‘Handle with care’

For the ‘mantle note bare’ of darkness

Yet the night wants to dance together to touch.

A nightly legacy….

From the full Moon night to the darkest of plight…

But when the Moon shines next

Night falls in love again madly, deeply and beyond pretext…..!

Let a black magic night dance in the arms of the Moon….

And let the love shine in the shines of stars croon.
