As the nightfall smiles,
she just comes along..
Not even waiting for a while..
strangling me, with feelings so strong.

Sun bids a good bye,
birds chirping,to take care,
they all seem too shy,
or maybe are aware..

Aware of her mystic beauty,
which is about to overwhelm,
as if its her duty,
to impress the entire realm.

A realm,that fears her,
for her overpowering strength,
of making vision blinded blur,
of spreading in entire breadth and length

And suddenly,she takes over,
struggling world tries to come at par,
begging fire to be their rover,
for showing them ways of near and far.

She understands their fears,
but still remains silent and calm..
unwarranted accusations,she bears,
sparkling stars become the healing balm..

Accusers still give her no respite,
looting achluphobics of their senses,
but so amazing is her awesome might,
simple silence ravages their defences..

Finally,her strength starts to fade,
I become a witness,as she weeps,
helplessly looking around for shade,
cruel world..simply sleeps..

And once again she is overpowered..
slowly leaving me with a hint of pain,
foolish worlds feels empowered,
insanely believing,it is safe again..

Leaving tracks in sand..
She just vanishes without a clue..
Earnestly,with my heart in hand..
My dear,I will wait for you..!!!


Dedicated to all of you insomniacs who love the darkness of night and her deafening silence...!


  1. This is powerful, friend !
    I loved the way you've portrayed that a night full of uncertainty is always followed by the dawn of hope. But then there are people who admire the darkness or more importantly the silence of the night. They'd yearn for it in daylight.
    Aspects, preferences and time. :D

    Wonderful !

  2. Thanks bro so much...and yes as a lover of night myself I have tried to ask a basic question,that why do we associate "badness" with night and dark..it is really unjustified...we must admire night for its beauty and silence..

  3. what a cool story...you give her strength in your descriptions...and she is one that is worth waiting for...smiles....i rather like the night as well...

  4. Interesting twist, at the end, to discover you are writing about elusive night......it was unexpected, and intriguing.

  5. A lot of labor into the rhyme, and insomnia is no fun.
