Apologies. But then – it took me time to write this poem (a lot of time ). I hope you guys like it !!!
I am but a shadow in dawn’s presence;
My soul desiccates under torrid sunlight,
Sublimating to the resplendent nothing
As a torpid pulse starves my weepy heart;
Its melancholy wails choked in dry vapor
We are twin siblings of this forsaken world:
The gauche masses chase her with lanterns,
Cursing her presence even in hours of repose;
Only she understands me, broken and forlorn,
Her arms are my comfort as I cry in silence
Our shared sorrow throbs in brittle marrow;
Her slight, gelid touch impales my hollow soul,
I become the cold: shedding corporeal bondage
To adopt her airy skin, I collapse toward umber,
Dissipating as gusts carry me into the unknown.
*Nyctophilia means love of the darkness .
Ps- I am Nyctophobic. Surprise surprise !!
