Moments passed by like ripples in the lake, And I waited, waited for something to happen. But not a sound could I hear The window seemed an empty canvas, A scream grew in my throat, Would there be some colors for God’s sake?
I stretched out my palms and caught some thin air, Alas, it slipped out of my hands, I know its inevitable, the blindness, But do I deserve loneliness, Screeching brakes and screaming sirens, The next thing I remember is a feeling of despair.
Light shut me out, darkness closed me in, Can’t find my friends anywhere, Bored of this visionless company, And I don’t find it uncanny, My young friends’ defiance of friendship, To leave me alone, in a game that I couldn’t win.
Few days of insight, made me think, I might have lost my sight, But shouldn’t I spare a thought For those who never had in their eyes, a ray of light.
