Flickering Streetlights

Flickering Streetlights

When my life stumbled upon on a massacre,

It felt the wounds of getting abandoned;

For a long time,for a long gap of attachment.


Danky dark lanes made me scared,

Howl over my helplessness & scratched my heart.


Hopelessness spinned over my head,

Grabbing & pricking my skin like a leech,

& isolation stirred venoms in my veins.


I saw everything dark,blank,bland & pale,

No way out, no resilience, no resolution;

I fall down slowly mixing with the dust in the soil,

& crying for a steady hand to lift me up.


Flickering street lights; feeble yet firm, blur yet prominent,

I didn’t let my eyelids pull over

& struggled to witness those dim lights

Which stealthily supplied my reticent heart a blaze.


My skinny limbs were torn apart,

Though those lights didn’t let me stop & sit,

& drown in the illusions of unsung melodies,

It boosted my source of energy to never give up,

To never whisper the words of “failure”,

& to never articulate the defeated attemption.


I was all alone with my heart desperately wanting

More & more of our serendipity of unison.

Flickering street lights fulfilled the vacuums,

The vacuums of my mourning solitude,

The voids of my bereaved separation,

& the vacancy of my impassive emotion.


I never let my dreadful journey incomplete,

In the fear of destining to an extreme point of horrific agony;

As those feeble streetlights never got extinguished

Even in their terribly lack of energy in ignition.


Flickering street lights never left me alone

In those thorny streets of loneliness;

Flickering street lights never faded away

In my howling breaths of terrifying voyage;

& flickering street lights never turned me down,

In the darkest period of endless nights.
