And, the last two nights
were the darkest.
Darkest of all nights;
absorbsed in melancholia
and your absence.
Your absence marks a phase;
my hollow soul hangs
between unknown hands
and you, my love, resonate.
You resonate in twisting
and turning of my body;
voices echo in beats
I couldn’t sleep with demons
whispering secrets in my head.

And now, another dusk,
another sleepless night.
Another night, another
tale of misery to unfold.
I sit still with life happening
to me, without fail
unlike you, my love,
who happened vigorously
sewing unforgettable memories
onto my parched skin.
I sit paralysed with night soaking
me into its disposition.
I cannot sleep with demons
whispering secrets in my head.

  1. Don’t ” love” live life, should be the slogan for 2018-19 atleast.
    Such a great read, poignant and full with emotion and mastery of words. Loved it.
    One thing don’t listen to the whispers of demons, they are the staunchest enemies of Human. I Pray to the Creator of heavens and the earth’s to grant you wisdom and power.

      1. Haha. I feel I’m done with dark and love poetries for now.
        I should explore other dimensions of writing too. That’s how poems like “Hypocrite” happens. Lol.

      2. Well trust me hypocrite is a revolutionary. And thing is, I am feeling the same way these days. I feel like I want to transition. Maybe I will just lay low of WordPress and explore other areas of writing. Like story-poetry or….on subjects such as depression. Humor. I love humor as well. You should try it. Dome of the humorous stuff that I have written just makes me gush. But maybe that’s smug. Any who….growing is what natters I guess

      3. Humour is something I’m very keen on trying to do. And you do humour pretty well, Hurain!
        I really, really feel the need to transition, just like you. Story,poetry,hindi poetry,posts dedicated to my personal views on political,economical and social issues, some diary entries, etc. I want to try it all! I don’t want to get stagnant in doing only one genre, especially when I have the liberty to express myself in different writing forms.
        Let’s grow together! We need to improve now!

      5. I’m looking forward to your poems and I’d be doing the same. I’ll send you my poems for review as well.
        You have the ability to master humour part. Yiee!
        And, same goes for the emotional part (God, you’re freaking talented, Hurain). I’m pretty obsessed with your imaginations. Love them so much! Trust me, you can master anything you want.
