The Shadow

The Shadow

I shadow me...

I shadow me…

a shadow follows me
in my dreams and waking.
ambling through a gloomy maze
seeking that something out of reach.
soaring high in turbulent skies;
diving into crimson seas;
treading the soil of futile dreams
then, a cup of something gleams,
luring with its sweet nectar
that ruined many a man and woman.
the shadow dares not indulge
in the swell of the world’s madness.
fleeing on silent feet
it moves on, engrossed,
in the fragments of its ambiguity
seeking hope in life’s hopelessness.
desiring to fill the void;
the void unknown, buried deep [avatar user=”Gracy DSouza” size=”100″ align=”right”] within the dark walls of its form
where none can see, neither find, nor know.
the shadow follows me
dissolves into me
I shadow me

The Calling

The Calling

until dawn unfurls

until dawn unfurls…

In the stillness of the night,
on soundless wings, it comes tapping
and descends upon me
like a soft kiss on an infant’s cheek
I see it not, but feel it pierce my sleep.
my pallid face radiates a fleeting smile
I surrender my weary head
to my pillow on which
the whimpers of life’s burden
sing a dark song all night
until dawn unfurls
and the rays of a new-born sun
strike my sleepy head.
I yawn, straighten, struggle to rise
contemplating about the chores in line
then, I smile to what came calling
in the stillness of the night [avatar user=”Gracy DSouza” size=”100″ align=”right”] with wings that urged me to fly
and so,
I rouse to the calling
and begin to write
