Until tomorrow

 

Come dark

Time moves doubly slow

I fidget my watch

But the seconds go only click by click

On a wakeful guard

I pray for sleep to come quick

And protect me

From whom?

You ask

There is no one in the room

From myself

From revisiting platinum memories of love ‘n’ loss

Inked on my very soul

An inseparable intricate ‘n’ exquisite mix

Of simpler days

When everything was in the palm of my hands

And

Of complex truths

Bewildered at the twisted lines of fate

 

All-day long I carry an albatross around my neck

I never let it show

Oh! night

Be a darling

Come free me from its titanium grip

I wake up

With a stabbing pain in my chest

And I know

My dreams betrayeth me still
