Reluctant Waking Up

Why not relinquish the consciousness to the darkness, a burden, an unwilling heaviness amidst morning

A sharp contradiction of brightness and dormant emotions, enjoying the gloomy moments

Pushing back sleep, the healthy desires, the space to dream of beautiful moments, even if they cannot fructify

Defying the odds of them revisiting me, again and again, I fail to shut the door on them, knowing they are unfriendly

Waking up to the uneasiness, when senses absorb every little detail of the existing anomalies, it’s an undesirable consciousness

It takes healthy energy, everyday, fighting the demons, the hostile visitors who plunder peaceful beginnings

Enwrapping the soul with various shades of darkness, doses of gloom savored like gluttonous shadows
