To the shades of night

Shaloo Walia is an astrologer and tarot reader. She is an Art of Living teacher and also an ardent Krishna devotee and a follower of ISKCON.

Lying awake and watching the various shades of night

Weary, long and tedious and sometimes pure delight

Loneliness grips overwhelming me with strange fright

At times, drifting to sleep as if caressed by moonlight.

Fiery serpents hissing in the languishingly dark

Blazing fire venomously, igniting the spark

And I writhe in crushing pain and cruel agony

With a broken spirit unable to cope with misery.

Sometimes the winds sing a soothing, sweet lullaby

A thousand blissful images in front of me flutter by

And my heart clings to the words of your promise

The flickering lights dance signaling a flawless romance.

Weaving magical dreams and their heavenly, multicolored hues

And sometimes brings back the faded memories of bruised blues

With his shadow lurking menacingly, what more can I lose

And then hopes of the rainbows that I will undoubtedly pursue.

      Your poetry is excellent. Phrases like "caressed by moonlight" and "flawless romance." make me imagine the experience and long for it.

      @Flourishanyway Freud is the best when we talk about human psychology!
