Dispel the Darkness

Lights have been long gone

Glitches of time or modernity struck by lightning

Complete darkness; an evening flinches

Used to flashiness and bytes of noisy media

Candles that have been forgotten

Kept away in a dark corner- just a fancy buying

Now, it becomes essential

To rush towards that nondescript place

Nervous fingers tackle the forgotten items

Once lit, they seem magical; medieval too

It does bury the nervousness

The open book looks brighter

A notebook of freshly written note

Adjusts to the candle’s illumination

The eyes too mellow down

Life changes to a lighter shade

Somehow, the tranquillity returns

A few candles rescue a soul

From darknesse’s melancholy

By this light, it will be an intense search

For the meaning of silence
