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 … Continue reading Fading Somewhere
