An ache in my heart --- an introverted dimness of shadows
Enshrouding the concealed inert soreness within the soul,
Hibernating, utterly lost in thoughts of comprehension
Looking back at which only sets wrinkles on my visage.
It is all over now; what lies ahead is a blinding veracity
Drizzling evenings wander languidly across my fatigued eyes.
Darkness chokes me giving rise to weeping droplets of pain
In solitude I seek consolation in the arms of visiting poetry.
It is true that time flies unnoticed during merriments,
But it does not terminate when beset by the blues of melancholy.
Mind swirling with mayhem haunts the bleak hours of slumber
I don’t know for certain but I feel I am to be blamed for this.
Sorrow came and settled in the core of my soul to be there forever
My heart was taken away and what was left behind was its flutters.
Sheathed in loss and pain blurring out of sight yet clear in mind
Like the caged butterflies my spirit quivers in search of freedom.
