Life almost – a poem

You are seeking the darkest of flickers

of a night

And a smile plays in the horizon

So dull and so prolonged

And a sojourn passes by

Shadow and dreams crest upon

Sun is a tired mess of memoir abandon

Fragments of noises litter the quieten

Yet a sojourn passes by

Artless metaphor

Candid flowing like a life almost!!!!!

And a dream starts

Without eyes shut tight

Images flutter with gossamer curtains

Here and there some place heartens

Again a death mistakes for life

And it starts breathing

Crimson were the air around

Dark were the mourns aloud

A mistake like a life almost !!!!!!

Wish for a night

Dreamless and eyes shut tight!!!!!

Wake me up ….to be again burnt

Death is dearer than a marooned dream.

Peek-a-boo of time

Day and night

And a mistake was life almost!!!!!!
