A Night

It was a pleasant night.
About right.
Your passage through time,
Through me.
Through the gaping holes which
Were damn well sealed. 

It was a purple night.
'Nuf bright.
You held my wrist,
Gave past a twist,
Leaving me curled up within.
Are we, again, desirous of sin?

It was a quiet night.
No fight
Of fancy conflicts of charged minds,
Of love once lost,
Of kisses to find
The numb corners of untouched soul,
The empty colours which painted us whole. 

It was a sultry night,
But flight
Was granted to imagination fleeing fast
To a past left aghast.
For stories were real,
Both here and there.
Yet we dance
In the midst of nowhere.

It was a nasty night. 
Did bite
Into the scars of darkness healed.
The scars were kisses,
'Tis now revealed.
And life gets tough
Love is but a bluff.
Mine for me.
Yours for you.
Ours for us,
But coloured blue.

  3. Your nexus of words emulate a cluster of melody of serene ripples of euphonious whispers; melting any literature lover’s heart with a taste of not getting enough when the piece comes to an end with the quenchless desire to having the stream of words keep on moving farther..….. So keep writing! Engineers like us need your flow of thoughts.
    Hopefully you are on the way to be another Jhumpa Lahiri, Arundhuti Roy, Bharati Mukharjee! Keep it up! Engineering is for bread and butter; literature is for soul!
