With the Darkness

Some darkness is persistently annoying

Contradicting the starry night of song and laughter

Pleasant conversations drown the cricket’s song

Anxious flame of the candle paints a scene

Different moods emerge from lengthening darkness

How deep the heart wants to inquire about it?

Nestled in the quietness of serious introspection

The busy city may not be aware of such leisure

Guarding the hard-earned break against prying eyes

Waiting for that moment for dreams to blossom

It does not matter anymore if darkness plays truant

Listening to this voice is comforting enough

The crickets can take their party elsewhere

I allow the darkness to seep deeper into my mind

Time to sort out the differences and call truce

Let the darkness stay as I lay here and reminisce
