Lights

Flanked by
Chandeliers,
I sleep.

Well, I imagine
That I sleep.

A simple girl
Who likes
Lightbulbs
And no fancy
Lights, do you
Think she can
Sleep?

She tries to
Sleep, but
Finds it hard
To fall asleep.

Surrounded
By those
Grandiose
Chandeliers,
She struggles to
Sleep.



 

(Some sleepless nights in this bungalow that is fitted with numerous decorative lights like chandeliers, spotlights, inset lights and downlights made me write this verse. In the dead of night, the sights of those pendulous chandeliers didn't let me sleep. It took me quite some time to get adjusted to these dangling lights in our new home.)
