TONIGHT ALL OF A SUDDEN
Dhaar Mehak
Tonight, all of a sudden

I looked up,

Only to find the dark sky!

I looked at the moon

and moon looked at me;

and I looked within;

Again,

As my eyes rose up,

I wonder, what it is like,

is the moon innocent

Or it is bald?

I but found it, unceasingly

Cold...

This coldness I know;

verily of experience,

this is it,

it counts for my, own experience.

The same cold feeling

The same dark surroundings

My heart doesn't know,

My being experienced...

A torn-lover?

Cowardly it sounds!

Nothing if that

a mere thought

and a passing vision.

As I look, deep inside,

all I find is, Ashes!

Memory but, has a say,

and it did play its part,

It reminded;

Once it was a kinked fire,

There was light

There was a shine

There were feelings

There were thoughts

Dreams indeed did exist...

Today the ashes, another aspect narrate;

Feelings abstracted

Thoughts vanished

Dreams of day, turned of night;

the only thing I remember

are; Traces...

The sky filled me with thoughts ;

My numbness, Alas! spark got?

Let me sprinkle some water over it!

Let numbness and neutrality prevail.

Let darkness continue

Let thoughts cease

Let rehashes vanish

and everything be cold.
