Darkness has set in.
And the mind lies submerged…
Budge- it cannot;
Any thought of revival is swiftly purg’d!
There is an alluring beauty-
In this darkness, that I find.
The enigmatic being flashes…
I reassure myself- no games played by the mind.
I dwell in a pall of gloom;
Where there is chaos unassumed!
I need… I must have… Energy…
Lest from within, I am consumed.
Alas, my faculty ebbs away.
I try staying empowered, all in vain-
Looming large is the darkness from within…
I grow numb; I feel no pain.
Finally, the maelstrom recedes.
Even in murky darkness, I see faint light.
Is it infernal, or is it divine?
I shall know when the soul, with wings, takes flight.
