End Of Night

Walking along the pavement, listening to each other,

we will not sleep tonight, just for the joy of insomnia.

The end of night will be tougher, but we will spend the time

talking to each other, being honest and welcoming the sun.

There will be moments when we will be silent for most of the time,

but wait for me while I write you a poetry and dance in the kitchen,

boiling eggs, making bad rotis and looking for late night take away,

there wont be any dull moment, till we approach the end of night.

Love will keep us awake, love will fill the corners of our room,

the hours will be quite after our passion collides, our world will close,

when the world outside wakes up to mundane activities and rush,

the first train passes outside, while we celebrate the end of night.

I move in & out
with heavy breathing and dull eyes
when the entire galaxy of stars come upon me
I realize its not a sleep, but a wait.
 
An unfair observation & twilight of characters
blinks and it fades off eventually.
and all I am left with is the space
which it has occupied.
 
Now i see a chip of light,
now making more sense
making it vulnerable, more physical
Announcing the safety & comfort of what is to beckon me with…
