I have always worn a new day crisp with hope,
It’s only the nights that have been hard to cope,
Like a wardrobe of choice apparels, they present,
Yet stick to my skin without my will or consent!
Look tonight; I am flaunting fear and depression,
Uncertainty of the future that’s longing progression,
It wraps my wishful heart in a blinding possession,
It strangles my courage into a failed submission!
The other night, sporting strength and confidence,
I made a vision to follow with unbreakable obedience,
Move against the odds and ahead with persistence,
Survive with dignity and help others with sustenance!
Some nights, I find myself in a robe of sadness,
I shatter for hours with self-pity and helplessness,
Love that I have lost will always be my weakness,
Spreading through my veins is a wreaking loneliness!
Rare nights, I don a warm attire of joy and gratitude,
A smile on my face blushed with a positive attitude,
I humbly admire all the blessings in my life’s servitude,
I find my true self in the sweet ambience of my solitude!
A few nights ago, in the boots of a curious explorer,
I scavenged worlds mysteries as an obsessed devourer,
Manifesting the universe secrets like a mastered conjurer,
In this fantasy-filled moment, I became a great sorcerer!
Occasionally, in a cosmic gown, I sit under the starlight,
And count the in numerous stars to my soul’s delight,
I bathe under the serene glow of the silvery moonlight,
But also absorb the calmness of dark moonless nights!
Most nights, I adorn a mundane emptiness and void,
Inflicted by a droughted mind, from thoughts I am devoid,
Numbed from all sentiments as if high on toxic opioid,
Trapped in a dark space, I choke and act paranoid!
Night after night, I change into feelings that touch deep,
My only complaint is that they don’t allow me to sleep,
Is there no silken form, putting me into much-needed rest?
Will these emotions of the night forever keep me at unrest!
