Fading Somewhere

A sulking evening is held feebly by the fading light

Stories of a day frivolously spent narrate only spite

Always a trembling insincerity while visiting a place

Celebrations everywhere, but the heart has a grimace

Azure skies have been less hopeful earlier in the day

Distressed feel from a journey of travellers who stray

Slanting light flows into a tremulous and loosened earth

Traveller’s memories cannot remember the eternal mirth

Joyless travels and tiredness erase the primordial hope

Humanity struggles with the truth they can barely cope

~Amitav
